Re: Anyone travel with just 5D2 and 50/1.4?

I've certainly travelled with just a 50 on a 5DII (and way before that on an EOS3, an EOS5 and an AE-1) and while it's a combo I'm very comfortable with, that's a purely personal preference - I've been using a 50 pretty much since I picked up an SLR and it's a bit like an old friend. The only thing I'd add to this combo is an extension tube "just in case".

To be honest though, if I can justify the bulk and I'm determined to stick with primes, I go 24/50/135 + 1.4x Extender but that seriously ups the weight.

Alternatively, as BozillaNZ mentions, 50 + 24/105 is a great combo.
