Re: 60d, 17-55 and 35 1.4L enough for travel?

I spent a year traveling around Asia with a T1i, 17-55, 55-250, and Sigma 10-20.

I don't know how you shoot, but the 17-55 was by far my most used lens for Portraits and Landscapes. I broke down my usage after the fact:

Canon 17-55: 77%
Canon 55-250: 13.7%
Sigma 10-20: 9.2%

(with some rounding errors).

The Sigma was a lot more flare resistant than the 17-55 for time exposures where the 17-55 has issues with bright light sources over time.

Almost all of my favorite shots were with the 17-55, but the 55-250 was really handy in bringing out details. If you forced me to, I'd drop the 10-20, but honestly they are such a killer combo I wouldn't want to travel without all three.
