    SzeKiat, 1 lens + 1 body + 1 tripod + 1 head + flash + etc already more than 10Kg. The Nature or rather Birders can be excluded from the poll lah.

    Usually just a wide and a short telephoto prime for a light walk about for me.
    But when i go overseas , it might just add up to almost 10kg

    Depends on assignment. It is too general for your question.

    Non-paid shoot 1 body 2 lens =~3kg?
    Paid assignment 2/3 bodies ~12 lenses a bag carrier alone ~3kg = ~20kg?

    I usually plan and know what I want to shoot. So I don't usually carry extra lens. Roughly 2-3kg inclusive of bag. I don't enjoy the shoot as much when I lug too many gears on me.

    Depends on the assignment and duration of assignment. Anywhere from 14kg to well over 800kg.
