Re: Which lenses to bring on a 1 week Maui trip

I'm taking a one week trip to Maui in March and want to take my new 5D3 and at least 2 lenses. I shoot mostly landscapes & seascapes, but will want a few portraits, flowers and nature shots. I don't want to haul around my entire assorment of glass and want to limit what I'm am hauling around especially when doing family excursions and dealing with airport carry ons limitations.

My glass is as follows (all Canon):

17-40L F4.0 , 24-105L F4 IS, 135 F2, 70-200 IS F2.8 MK II, 100-400L F5.6.

I was leaning to 24-105L & 70-200 IS F2.8 MK II combo,

or 17-40L & 24-105L to stay lean and be more compact.

Not sure if the flash (580EXII) will be worth taking especially with high ISO abilities of the 5D3.

I think I've ruled out the 100-400 completely.

I will likely take my tripod but will not use it every day depending on what is going on that day!

I don't want this trip to be all about talking photos but be more about making memories with my daughter and girlfriend and caputring that experience.

Any lens / equipment suggestions welcome!


24-105 anything else for me on FF would be just weight and worries.
