Re: Tokyo & Hong Kong...what to bring?

“Everything” consists of a D700, 14-24mm f2.8, 35mm f1.4G, 24-70mm f2.8, 85mm 1.4D, 70-200mm VRII F2.8, all Nikon glass and a lightweight Manfrotto carbon tripod.

I spent about a week in each of these cities, using a D80. You'll definitely want to go wide for the narrow lanes (especially in HK Central) so the 14-24 is a must IMHO. The rest would depend on your relative interets, but I'd go for the 85 (as someone suggested, had you had the 24 1.4, I would also definitely have pointed this one in addition to the 85 1.4).

I wouldn't bother with the tripod, especially in HK (too much pedestrian traffic on the relatively narrow sidewalks).
