Packing for India
Jun 22, 2007

My total kit includes a 16-35 2.8L, 24-105 4L IS, 70-300 DO IS, and 50 1.4 with my 5D. Last summer I spent a month in Italy with all but the 50mm, however 98% of the time I just carried the 5D with the 24-105 in a Lowepro TZ1. It was just to hot to lug everything around.

This fall I'm going to India and I am thinking about taking the 5D with the 24-105 and the 70-300 in my Billingham 106. I could pick up a 70-200 4L IS for a bit better lens, but the less conspicuous (and longer reach) 70-300 DO has some merit with people and travel. I also miss the real wide end but the 24-104 is not bad. That little EXTRA weight is kind of the straw that breaks my back (and requires squeezing the lenses in with thin nylon bags rather than a protective divider. Also a 220EX flash.

I am interested to hear what others think about travel kits given the perspective above. Thanks for the insites.
