Well, my normal gear that i always take when i travel are the following:

Main camera: Full Frame [once with 5D and twice with 1DsIII, but not sure in the future i may take 1DX or Sony A7R or 1Ds3 again]
Backup camera: Fast camera, such as 1DmkIIn that i took once or 1DIII [can't remember i took that to my last 2 travels]
The trinity zooms: 16-35, 24-70, 70-200
Macro lens: 100 2.8 macro

Above are are the main general i always take, now below is the list of bonus lenses i carry sometimes:

24-105L
100-400
50mm f1.4
15 fisheye
85mm

But i now have new cameras and new lenses, so i may take more more lenses this time if i will travel, and that includes:
TS-E 17 &24II
Samyang 14mm
Sony 55mm FE

The more far distances or places i go the more gear i carry, and also depends on what i will shoot, if landscapes and architecture then i don't carry 100-400 or 85 or 50mm, but that 50mm and 55 FE both are very light lenses so i consider them as they are not included, i can put them in my pocket if i need to, but if i carry larger zooms or primes such as 100-400 then it is actually safari or birding vacation which i never did yet.

In the future i also look for to buy more lenses and upgrade or replace some i have already, such as Sigma or Tamron 150-600, 100-400II[Upgrade after i sell my mk1], 24-70II[Upgrade],....etc, same with cameras maybe but i more focus on lenses.

As some who posted earlier, I decided to buy a separate "travel" camera.
I wanted lower cost - so if it got stolen I wouldn't suffer much.
I wanted smaller/lighter - so I could carry without any hassle.
I wanted great IQ - but I realized I wouldn't be able to duplicate DSLR quality with a "travel" camera.
After some research, I finally decided on Canon SX-700 .... and I've been well satisfied ever since.
... here's a link: http://www.cnet.com …canon-powershot-sx700-hs/ (external link)

The 30x zoom is very useful. With the IQ of my normal primes, I can crop 8 to 10x in editing for special closeup views. With SX-700, I can only crop maybe 2x before losing IQ.... but using the zoom, I can get good closeups; I just have to remember to zoom and click more.

Search on SX-700 to find a couple threads with sample photos.

Your setup looks almost identical to mine except for my 6D and my Tenba Mini Messenger bag.
Makes swapping lenses a snap. Best small gear bag I have ever used.

Hi, on most vacations I take:

5D Mark III
24-70L II
70-300L
Speedlite 600EX-RT

A little heavy but I almost never find myself wanting or needing more.

My last two trips to Europe, I took the following:

Camera 5D M II
16-35mm f/2.8
50mm f/1.2
70-200mm f/2.8

As a trial , I took each lens out on different days. Found that I enjoyed the outing with the 50mm and the 70-200mm most. Wished
the 70-200mm was coloured black though and not so intimidating. Have just added the 24-105mm f/4.0 IS and may leave the 70-200mm at home for my next trip.


Canon 5D Mk III
EF70-200mm f2.8L IS MKII; EF50mm f1.2L; EF16-35mm f2.8L II; EF100mm f2.8L IS Macro; EF24-105mm f4.0L IS; EF200mmf2.8L II USM

I can see that...if one was driving and had the room. I do that all the time, taking a full case of gear on vacation with a smaller daypack to pick and take what I want for where I'm at.

Yes

It is just i carry many things with me, and when i go in tours inside the city or to landscapes out of the city i just carry what i need and leave the rest in the hotel room or someone house if i stay with someone, but i can't travel overseas and leave most lenses and then cry there overseas i didn't bring this lens or that, and i do shoot very serious and not just quick shots here and there, so every gear is counted when possible.

Yep, that's my problem - when traveling overseas I have to be very careful as to what to pack to take with me on a plane - I would never check the equipment in. If I travel by car - everything goes in the bag(s), plus the tripods, extenders, and whatever lens you can think about.

6 weeks in Europe at the end of last year...

Did the whole thing with the Sigma 18 - 35 on the Canon 60D.

Only a couple of occasions where i felt the need for reach, but was happy with my choice to take one lens as i was always ready to shoot!


Canon 60D : Sigma 18-35 1.8 : 55-250mm IS : 430ex II

Most recently, I took my Canon 18-135 STM. Last time, I took my Sigma 24-70 2.8. I miss the 2.8 when we go indoors, but the focal length and the IQ of the STM (and the IS) have been nice. I will say, most of my use is family photos and not professional art photos.

I am tempted by the 24-105 L, but I'm not sure if it would be any better.
