Hi all, just want to seek some advice on this.
During my travels, if I know there's going to be a car, I'll bring quite a few lens cos it means i can take my own sweet time for photography and I've a sheltered environment to change lens.
However, there's gonna be instances where I have to follow bus/metro schedules in driving-unfriendly-for-amateurs countries. For those cases, I'll just bring a long range lens and a wide-angle lens. I find myself having to switch lens frequently. Lens switching takes time (yes, I've not master this yet) and each change of lens exposes my camera body to potential entrance of dust (or even large particles) in some 'dusty' countries.
Does it make sense to bring have 1 camera body for each lens and bring both? Or stick with 1 body 2 lens. Wondering if the additional weight is justifable.
Also, I'm using a tamrac Velocity 8x now for my travels. Although it's a good back, the fact is it's a sling bag that puts the weight on only 1 shoulder, makes a rather sore shoulder (and neck) after a while. For places where I need to trek a lot by foot, think a backpack will be better? Any recommendations?
