    For me -- a whole lot less than I did 8-10 years ago. I remember various trips to Vietnam, Greece, Nepal etc where I lugged 2 manual bodies (FM2n + FE2), 24mm, 50mm and 75-150zoom plus tripod, flash etc. On my more recent trips to Russia, India and egypt all that was cut down to just a D70 and 18-70 lens plus a P&S. Soon I'll be off again to Eastern Europe and this time my bag will have a D60, 16-85 and 70-300VR. Actually I'm still reconsidering the 70-300 As I get older and lazier I bring smaller and simpler stuff!

    You need to ask what type of trip.

    But in most cases, nowadays, my trusty near industructable (ok, I never tried) Olympus 850 SW.

    Any particular reason why do you bring the Minolta 80-200mm F2.8 and 70-210mm f4 out to HK? I just thought the range is about the same.
    You must be a big strong guy to carry all these for a HK trip.

    I am going to HK next week.
    Bringing my FM2 and 50mm f/1.8 only.

    Intending to get a 24-70 f/2.8 or 24-105 f/4 when I am there, but too lazy to bring my dslr.
    I am sure they will let me try on their display set cameras right?

    Wow, paid shoot or Holiday? Can't imagine packing so much and flying to Hong Kong. Last time I was there was many years ago for 1 month but I only brought 2 bodies and about 4 lenses. All OM film stuff so it was lighter and about 60 rolls of film. Driving to malaysia maybe will pack more but flying has it's own set of limitations.
