    thanks for all the inputs from the seniors here

    The luggage limit is 20KG

    i'm planning to shoot:

    Macro
    Landscape
    Portraits
    Abstract
    Street
    Food
    Sports

    Thanks

    you sure sis you're going on holiday not photo trip assignment? if you want to shoot all of the above you need to bring all your gears :-)

    but I think if you have your 100mm f2.8 MACRO lens this should cover (Macro, Portraits, food) landscape your handly 16-80 should do this will cover (landscape, street abstract). For sport it's hard unless you have your 70-200 or 70-300G

    so all in all you need maybe 3 or 4 lenses
    100 f2.8
    16-80
    70-200 or 20-300

    you can also bring small primes if you still have space like 50 f1.4 or 85 f2.8

    Oh your camera bag just bring it a carry on they don't count it as carry on e.g. you can have two bag one laptop/camera bag plus on more if you want.

    Best posts in the thread.

    Just wear the short skirts and clean underwear and ask any camera-uncles you see at the tourists spots to take your picture and email to you. They will excitedly write down your email while their drool drips down the D4. Am sure they will go back upload and zoom in at 100% to pixel peep at you so don't let them take low angle shots.

    If its a holiday bring only one lens. The one that you can use for most of the given scenarios.

    Don't forget to cut your toenails and paint them.

    Wear slippers so that you can expose them.

    NEX 7 not much lenses to choose from :-) 18-200 would be your choice and for macro the 30mm? for portraits your MF lenses for sport I don't know you can try your 18-200

    this is if you don't have LA-EA2 if you do then bring your A-Mount lenses hehe
