I spent two months traveling in Shanghai, Zhongshan, and Macau. Brought along a Nikon D90, 10-24mm, 16-85mm, 70-300mm VR, fisheye, and Gitzo Traveler tripod.

Used the 16-85mm about 60%, 10-24mm 38%, 70-300mm 1%, fisheye 1%. Didn't use the tripod as much as expected, but it helped get some wonderful night shots. Shanghai and Macau is wonderfully lighted in the evenings.

Ended up buying two Benro carbon fiber tripods Shanghai. Awesome value, better built than my Gitzos which I paid 4x to 5x more. Been using them heavily for 5 months now and very happy. Next trip I'm leaving all tripods at home and buying more Benro's in China
