Re: Still use my 20D and 5D on travel

Having the right bag makes it easy to carry a 5kg bag of stuff all day, and they are so superior in so many ways to the rest that travel is the one time I'd never go without them.

Me too, and there is even no need to carry a 5 kg bag. The Sigma 18-50mm f2.8 Macro and EF-S 55-250mm IS make a great allrounder combo. For countryside trips, I add the Sigma 50mm f.28 Macro, for cities and buildings the EF-S 10-22mm.

...with Sigma 50mm f2.8 Macro

Schizophyllum commune

Dactylorhiza maculata or fuchsii

Of course to get shots like this there is no way around the 100-400mm L IS (or an equivalent lens) and thats the point where it gets heavy:
