    I bought it previously as my lens was not too big, and I do not need to take the bag off my shoulder to retrieve or keep the camera. It is actually on the go.
    Like I said, get a bigger bag. It is ok to have more than one camera bag. I have 15.

    My usual load for travel is: pro FF body, 2nd FF body, 70-200/2.8, 24-70/2.8, 16-35/4, filters, tripod and all kinds of accessories. Is it heavy? yes... Is it unbearable? No. Want good pictures, this is what I have to do. If not, a perfect scene come by and I will knocking myself on the wall because I missed it because I did not bring this and that lens/body.

    It is more important not to try to scrimp on your carrying solutions (bags, straps, belts, pouches) because lousy bags will make it awkward and weigh you down. Get the best bags out there and learn how to distribute the weight off your shoulders.

    Hi Daredevil123, I noticed you brought along 16-35 and 24-70. Their focal length seems to overlap quite a bit. I was actually thinking of getting 17-35 2.8 to replace 24-70 when traveling since it will be lighter. Not sure if that is a good idea.

    Ah, I see. Even if it's the Up-Rise 45, it's also abit tight to put in or take out the gears. Now I'm using ThinkTank StreetWalker Pro. Can easily load up a few lenses and a few flashes.

    Part of my work involves photography... so have to have right fit for different situations. Sometimes i work out of a roller in the car but have different shoulder bags for different sessions in the day.

    15 includes pouches for my modular system. And yes, i have a full rack of bags. For birding i use the think tank glass limo. My Think Tank international follows me for strobist work and urban disguise for indoor work. Travelling i usually reconfig my glass limo, or i use my shapeshifter all with modular pouches when i hit the field.

    focal length overlapping is a not an issue when photographers are shooting for money, it is an insurance for back up too.

    You can always detach your lenses from your body and keep it separately. I've tried it before. 70-200 doesn't fit in my backpack when my lens is attached to my body, but works when I detached it. It fits nicely

    I do not care about focal length overlap. I only care about one thing. With that one particular lens mounted on my camera, will I be fast enough to react to situations that happen by the second.

    People who care about focal lenght overlap, or "covering" every and all focal lengths over a range too much, is actually counter productive. More often than not, are quite inexperienced and do not understand the craft very well.

    Hi daredevil, thanks for your reply. I am just wondering that the slightly wider angle is worthwhile to carry both 16-35 and 24-70. But that is just me thinking aloud.

    16 vs 24 is not slightly wider. It is very very much wider. You cannot think of focal length in terms of mm... 16 vs 24mm, and 70 vs 78mm. both is different by 8mm, but the difference in FOV angle is heaven and earth.

    totally agree.the differences in mm can make or break a photo.
    16-35mm and 24-70mm are both for different purposes.

    Maybe I should just clarify my question. I usually go travelling with my family and I prefer to travel light . I can if I want to carry sigma12-24, Nikon 24-70 and Nikon 70-200 and two bodies . But I think it is just too tiring for me as I am not exactly young anymore. Thus I was wondering if 17-35 could replace the 12-24 and 24-70 if not all at least most of the scenery and people shots as a sort of compromise. I would usually travel with 1 body and 1 lens. Maybe my question sound inexperienced or someone who does not know his craft so do pardon me for this noob question.

    But it's just the matter of shooting style preference. If you are rarely using anything beyond 35mm, then a 17-35 might be a good compromise.

    For focal length, in the end you can only decide for yourself. Do you shot from 35mm to 70mm? will you miss 12mm to 16mm? Only you can answer that.

    As for me, if I do not have the 24-70 and only the 16-35mm, I can adjust my shooting to the focal length...
