My kit for Cambodia - difficult decisions

Hi guys, I'd appreciate your thoughts on this.

I'm flying out to Cambodia tonight and will be there for a week or so, mostly at Angkor but also at the Killing Fields and Tuol Seng in and around Phnom Penh.

I've had a difficult time deciding which gear to take with me and which to leave behind - especially in terms of lenses. Anyhow, this has been my decision:

Taking: E-P3, 14-42IIR, 40-150ED, 12/2.0

Leaving behind: 45/1.8, Rokinon 7.5mm fisheye, Sirui carbon-fibre tripod with PhotoClam ballhead.

I'm also taking all my filters, cleaning stuff, a Billington Hadley Small camera bag and a very lightweight (300g) tripod I bought this afternoon for the equivalent of US$12. It's crap compared with the Sirui/Photoclam, but much lighter. And a tripod does seem necessary for the obligatory Angkor Wat sunrise shot.

Thoughts? What would you guys do differently?
