I'm conveniently close to Italy so have visited a couple of times this year - once carrying a Sigma 10-20, and Nikon 70-300VR together with the Nikon 40mm macro for textures/details a lightweight evening walkabout, the second time just carrying an Olympus EPL1 with Lumix 20mm. To save weight on day trips I would often just carry the 40mm plus either the wide or tele zoom, depending on what type of images I'd imagine taking.

So, which lens did you use the most with your Nikon?

Going to locations I'd not visited before - the Sigma 10-20. If I was on a 'family' holiday and expected to be taking a fair number of pictures of 'family' I'd probably have taken the 18-105mm along - the 10-20mm is rarely flattering!
