Re: Rome lenses

From my trips to Rome (and Italy as a whole), I found it was pretty easy to get as close as I wanted to almost everything. I often find that unless I am doing documentary style things in Europe, I rarely need the telephoto. Streets are small, most buildings are close together, and usually almost everything is accessible.

I think you would really regret not bringing the 16-35 and the 24-105. Don't skip the 24-105! I recently did a Europe Tour and brought my 5dii and 60d and was trying to lighten up and skipped the 24-105 since I already had a 16-35, 50mm, and 70-200. If I could do it again, I would have skipped the 70-200 to bring that 24-105. So much of what we love to take pictures of in Europe is outside and speed and reach aren't my main issue.

I'd be more worried about not having a fast wide/normal lens because the inside of those churches and museums are so dim...

I'd leave the 70-300 and 100mm at home and rent a 1.4 prime probably a 24mm or 35mm.
