I think that for most of my trips I could get by with just the 5D, 16-35, and a zoom (24-105 or 24-70). However, whenever I do just that I find myself thinking of particular situations wher another lens (prime) would have done a better job. For example, my kids playing in the park would be easily shot with a 24-105 but a 135L would take it a step further.

From Zero to 17-40mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm, 135L 100-400mm, and 500mm with t-cons two bodies,.. or anywhere in between.

Depends on the vacation.

My XSi and a walkaround lens (18-135), with maybe an extra card in my pocket. No camera bag, no changing lenses, no fiddling with gear. Try it sometime.

...all of it, including tripod and monopod.

If driving I am more inclined to just throw it all in the back of the SUV. When flying I will sometimes bring the 70-200 f/2.8 IS but use the 17-55 and 10-22 the most.

I tried that last time and everytime someone stood next to me with a red ring I felt a bit lonely.

Lol I was just contemplating what to bring on my vacation and i thought the 7d, 24-70 and 70-200 would be alot, but you guys are bringing 2-3 bodies and 5-6 lenses lol. ZC photo i would pring your 5d mark Ii, your t2i, your 24-70/24-105 (whatever you like more), and 70-200 2.8. That way you can have a 24-70 on one body while you have a 70-200 on another making for a seamless 24-200 2.8 range. I would probably mount the 24-105 on the 5d (to get the 24mm wide angle) and the 70-200 2.8 on the t2i to gain some extra reach.

I have always over-packed for vacations and I always regret it. Especially when I'm flying it is such a burden to lug tons of lenses and bodies with you (unless they're actually specifically needed then you just sack up and deal with it haha)

For example: On my last trip to New Zealand ( 2008 ) I took.....

5D - Gripped
1DmkII
16-35L
24-70L
70-200 f/2.8L
35L
15 fisheye (why? I don't know)
50mm f/1.4
100mm Macro

What I actually used?
5D
35L
24-70L

I took a panoramic with the 50mm, and I took a couple wide angle landscape shots. The rest practically never left the bag and forced me to carry it.

My "must bring" kit for NY is the 5D/16-35 and T2i/24-105 (38-168mm FF equiv). The 70-200 I question more than anything because of its weight, appearance (attracts attention),value, physical size, and I would likely not go all the way out to the 200mm range often. However, it is near perfect for pics of the kids and would be used most on the short end.

For this upcoming trip we will be in one hotel so storing the gear and only using a lens a couple of times is no big deal I guess. On the other hand, my gear is not insured for travel so I'm taking a chance. If I'm on a trip that will require me to move around I definitely go as light as possible.

Well thats true since the 70-200 2.8 is huge and white, ya your setup seems much more convenient then mine but i would also bring a cheaper prime like a 50mm 1.8 or 1.4 for very low light shots. I would not bring another L in the fear of losing, damaging it

Imagine loosing a bag with 5D, T2i, 16-35, 24-105, 70-200, 24L, MBP, iPad. Thats around $13k+ in gear. Ouch!

I take this on all my vacations and almost every shoot I go one.
2 5Ds
24L
35L
85L
200 2L

Extra batteries and cards.


Back in the film days I would take a couple of
500 C/Ms
50mm FLE CF
80mm CF
120mm CF
180mm CF

a couple of F-1s
24L
35mm
55 1.2 aspherical
85 1.2 aspherical

So I definitely travel lighter now.
