(2) 18-105 VR
(3) 11-16 f2.8
(4) 35 f1.8
(5) Canon HF11
(6) other standard accessories and backups
i think the ultimate setup is the D40 and the 18-55 in a small sling pouch
the last time i explored parts of malaysia in a rented car, my photographic gear only:
2) AFS 24-85 F3.5-4.5
everything inside a lowepro photorunner. still very spaceous for my other personal stuff.
cameras are not made of tofu
I brought all I have for my last trip to Japan
- 50mm f1.8
- Powershot G7
- Battery x2
- Filters (ND8 + UV)
- Tripod [190XPROB]
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.
for relaxing holiday, PNS and camcorder can liao...
You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.
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
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 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.
