I'm guessing a 2 lb savings in total kit wouldnt be enough to switch out all the gear. Heck since wife is bringing OMD, an ultrawide for that camera would be a compromise, where the 7D would have the 55-250 married to the camera.

Well first of all one has to accept smaller and lighter =/= cheaper.

I live in Australia and I usually have to settle for grey import. Just checked the Oly 9-18mm on eBay and it's cheaper than 10-22mm ($600 vs $700 AUD).

Sure you can argue that the 10-22 is slightly better/sharper, but DR wise Oly can easily match Canon sensor, and Fuji/Sony totally trumps any Canon.

Basically you aren't really losing anything IQ wise, and getting the same performance (if not better) in a tiny package.

Point is if you can get the same performance (well in reality better) with a compact, lightweight mirrorless, why wouldn't you?

coz I have an infatuation on my 7D? I'm not looking to bring any other camera bro so no sense in debating between m43 and my 7D. I started the thread looking for lenses, so lets focus on that. thanks man

I'll bring the Canon and whatever lenses I decided for now, then I'll see. My wife has an Oly E-M5, so I'll try that as well on the trip and then reevaluate once we get back in the USA. but for now I'll give my Canon a chance. I'm just so comfortable using my Canon when I tried the E-m5 it was just overwhelming to switch to a new system entirely.

Per the original post:
10-22
17-55
70-200 f4
Maybe a 1.4 TC

And definitely the GoPro, too!

...or, hey...maybe a mirrorless...:lol::lol:

Two, for this trip we invested in ultralight equipments so as not to worry about how heavy our cameras(not that its really heavy) will be. We replaced all our stuffs from the ground up from tents, sleeping bags to cooksets etc. Its waaay lighter compared to what we have before.

Seems like a waste when there are legitimate ways to drop 2-5 pounds off the camera kit without sacrificing a drop of image quality.

You asked advice, we aren't going to give you advice we think is bad, even if that's what you want. If you asked what kind of saw to use to cut off your arm, I'd say DON"T CUT OFF YOUR ARM!!! :)

i'd venture to guess all the change in gear is dropping off a lot more than 5lbs in weight...

the guy wants to take his 7D...it's really not a terrible decision...

Wouldn't you start by asking "do you have gangrene?"
