It's a pretty intense lens. It's probably right on that edge where you should use a monopod or tripod I'd say.

When I use it I have it on a Black Rapid strap and only pull it up when I'm going to snap a shot.

kinda sexist?

It's a matter of personal endurance...

When I shoot with 2x bodies, 1 is on a Black-Rapid strap, the other in my hands strapless.
1x body, handheld no strap..

I hate straps

Does someone use 24-70mm F/2.8L USM, 70-200mm F/2.8 L USM (the extremely heavy/expensive lens) during trips, tours?

I know that these lenses are very suitable for studio photography, but are these lenses still suitable for take photographs during trips, tours as well?

I'm afraid your questions aren't very good, because everybody is different.

I just went on a one week trip with a backpack with 6 lenses, camera and computer and another backpack with my clothes and some books. I don't have a car and carried the bags and traveled by train and rented a motor scooter in the towns I visited. That was OK for me but would be a nightmare to some people. I know a guy who won't even take his DSLR when he travels--he has a Sony RX100 he keeps in his pocket--and this guy has a car. Do you hate carrying stuff, or do you consider yourself fairly rugged?
