What's the most glass you've taken on vacation?

I'm going to Hawaii in October and I plan on bringing all my current gear. It all fits in my Think Tank Retrospective 10.

However, I won't be carrying all my lenses at the same time. If I'm out at the beach I plan on bringing my zooms. If I go out to a luau I'll bring my 24-70mm & my primes (I think the 70-200mm f4 IS might be too slow for late night shooting at a luau where they got the guys dancing and throwing flames and stuff). Walking around during the day I might bring my 24-70 and 50mm.

Gear:
Canon 5DII
24-70mm f2.8L
70-200mm f4 IS L
50mm f1.4
85mm f1.8
580EX II

Now my next decision is if I should bring my tripod? Manfrotto 190XPROB with a 488RC2. Decisions... decisions...

I think we have to define "vacation".

If it's a destination resort, bring a pocket camera and flag for the beach chair for when you need a fresh drink.

If it's North Korea for a month, bring it all. Unless it's a lens-specific destination, I bring my 3 zooms during the day. A lighter day, I'd bring my 21 and 100 Zeiss's, and 24-85 Contax. If it's later, maybe early pm, I bring my fastest primes, 28, 50 and 100 Zeiss's.

I think the f4 is probably a little slow for a luau, unless the sun hasn't quite set yet. I'd also say yes on the tripod. Just remember, don't leave anything in your car!
