Traveling with expensive lenses.
Nov 14, 2010

Almost all the pictures I take are in and around my house and on day trips. I'm lucky enough to have a 7D and some great lenses including the 24mm f/1.4L II, 85mm f/1.2L II, 100mm f/2.8L, 10-22mm, and 17-55mm f/2.8.

I travel a few times a year, and am going to Prague in January. When I travel, I worry about being a target with a relatively big camera and lenses. So I generally just bring a 50mm f/1.4 and settle for less flexibility and performance. Or I get too nervous and only bring a Panasonic GF1 with the 20mm lens and that's it.

Is it just me? Am I overthinking this? Does anyone have tips for reducing big camera travel anxiety?
