Everytime I'm packing for trips (leisure) I find myself trying to take more than I should. Now that I have a TT Airport Takeoff (plenty of space and easier to secure) I find myself wanting to take a lot of glass. I'm off for a week long NYC trip with the wife and kids so this has been on my mind lately. What's the most glass and gear you've taken on vacation (or holiday ;))?

Well, looking at your gear you can have problem choosing ;). I would take 16-35 2.8 + 24L + 85 1.8 probably because of its weight. Plus maybe some zoom if you like one ;).

+ 5d2 ;)

The most? For an East African safari (there were 3 of us):

16-35L II x 2 copies
17-40L
24-70L x 2 copies
24-105L
85L
70-200 f/2.8L IS x 4 copies (between the three of us - don't ask!)
100 Macro x 2 copies
Zeiss MP 100 ZE
Sigma 120-300
135L
400 f/2.8L
400 f/5.6L
500L
600L
800L
Telescope for astrophotography
1.4x TC x 3 copies
2x TC x 2 copies
5D2 x 2 copies
1D3 x 4 copies
1Ds3 x 1 copy
A lot of other junk

Only thing we were missing was a battery of powerful studio flashes, to bounce off clouds for evening/night shots!

Wishlist for next time: remote-controlled helicopter to carry a massive bounce card!

I had a specific plan but didnt follow it. I packed my 5D2, T2i, and 5 lenses (16-35, 24-105, 70-200, 24L, Zeiss 35 which is pretty small). I hated packing the 70-200 but zoos, kids running around at the park, etc. will make me regret not taking that fine piece of 25 lb. glass.

Recent trip to China:

5D2
7D
17L
35L
85L
24-70
tripod
epson p3000
6x LP-E6
a ridiculous amount of memory cards.
iPad
Macbook Pro

I somehow jammed all of this into my Tilopa and hiked up two mountains. Won't be doing that again anytime soon :)

Wow! Does insurance cover gear though in China or were you without coverage on all that? My fear is carrying thousands of dollars (actually $10k) in gear as I'm not covered outside the home.

I used to have backpacks and larger bags ( thinktank as well ) I realized I never take more then 3 lenses anywhere so I sold off my larger bags and now own some great smaller shoulder bags that make travel much easier and fun. Usually a 24-105 + 50 is enough for me but I am even considering something smaller like the NEX5 or whatever Canon or panasonic updates the G11 or LX3 for casual travel but for something special I would take more but even when I was in Galapagos I mostly used just a 24-105 + 70-200 2.8.

They would cover it however the day before I flew out (5 hours before actually) I got a call from the insurance company saying they wanted photos of all the gear before I left. Couldn't do it so I just said screw it I'll go without insurance and keep an eye on my gear.

This was just the Canon jeep - we had four Nikon shooters in the other jeep, similarly kitted out!

Umm all of them in my sigline normally. Murphys law states if you leave one behind you will need it several times on vacation.

Even the 150-500? Thats a big lens to carry.

The keyword is leisure it's not an assignment. Last year I brought with me a 7D with 3 lenses (17-40, Sigma 50, 70-200 f/4 IS) to Asia.

Nikon/Fuji.
Gear is important but skills are very important :)

I took my XS with the kit lens and the Sigma 50f2.8 macro. That was the heavy trip - but a Canon Powershot came in handy also.
