    this thread is degenerating... and i hope that TS has gotten his answers.

    But...a D3 and a 70-200 would be suffice to whack any potential robbers. Just be ready to use it...you are going to lose the equip anyway, might as well put it to good use.

    Regards

    What did you shoot in HK that requires you to bring so many lenses?

    For me, it depends on what I forsee myself shooting.

    In places like HK, I'll be bring a 50mm and 100mm prime for streets, and 12-24 for the rest.
    In USA, most of the time just 12-24 and landscape related equipments.

    Just got back from 3 weeks in Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Bosnia and Croatia. Brought two Nikon D60 bodies with 16-85 and 70-300VR attached. Found that I was shooting with the 16-85 most of the time. On final tally, I think only 15% of my shots were taken with the 70-300. Guess I'm more a wide angle kind of guys although this may be bacause of the locations I travelled to. Eastern Europe has lots of very interesting architecture. I suppose if I were shooting pics of animals in africa, a long telephoto would be more useful. I also found VR to be extremely useful for indoor church or museum shots. Was shooting at 1/8 of a second a lot of the time. Next time I travel, maybe I'll leave the 70-300 at home and just bring a 35/1.8 mounted on the backup body.

    Was in Japan during May Just brought along my limited usual stuff
    1) EOS 400
    2) Canon F/3.5-5.6 28-200mm <- Trusty as always. 1 lens for all occasion except low light conditions
    3) Canon F/3.5-5.6 18-55mm <- Did not use that much
    4) Polarizers
    5) Extra Batteries
    6) Crumpler 7-million Dollar Home
    7) Silk Tripod <- Did not use much. A lot of places of interest I revisited disallowed the use of tripod as compared to when I was in Japan 2 years ago. Maybe it is time to go monopod

    Was hoping to get some glass in Japan but the Yen was too strong

    My last trip to Tokyo (Mar 2009) as well as Sydney (June 2009), just recently.

    1) Canon 40D
    2) EFS 17-55 f/2.8 (attached to cam)
    3) EFS 10-22
    4) spare batt
    5) CPL only
    6) cloth, brush, blower.
    7) Domke wrap for cam as I used my back pack to move around.
    8) I forgot to add....my back-up LX3

    Nice & light.....but if the kids are not with me....would bring the Gitzo along. Could not take nice night shots of Opera House without tripod.

    My setup is almost the same as santaclaus2100 except I'm using 30D. In addtional when I went travelling in France, Italy & UK, took along
    1) 50mm f1.8
    2) Manfrotto tripod
    3) Oly PNS

    I felt the weight was too much after the first few days. Certain days took my PNS when I can't take it. It is a holiday too, to enjoy and not to suffer.
