Lenses for Canada/Alaska

I am due to go on a trip to Canada and Alaska next month.

The route is from Calgary to Banff to Jasper and thence on the Rocky Mountaineer (Goldleaf Class) to Vancouver and the Island.

Thereafter I do a 7-day round trip up th Alaskan coast.

The problem is that the airline imposes a 5Kg limit on cabin baggage. My inital equipment selection of:

2 x E510, 8mm, 7-14mm, 14-54mm, 50-200mm, EC-14 and XZ-1

is at or beyond this.

Where should I economise?

My past experience is that, safaris apart, telephotos get the least use by far, but will this general rule apply to this trip?

I have the 40-150 (both versions) and a 70-300 to substitute for the 50-200. I have a 9-18 to substitute for the 7-14.

Thanks for any help.
