Re: Is it crazy to consider leaving my D800 at home while I travel

I'm not going to read all the posts in this thread.  My opinion (for me)...

I am not going to take an overseas trip to a location I will likely never visit again and not bring "good" gear.  That doesn't mean I bring all my gear.

In the last 2 years I have taken two meaningful overseas trips.  I brought my D800.  For lenses I brought my 24-120 f/4 VR, 70-200 f/2.8 VR, 50mm f/1.8, and a 1.4x TC.  The 50mm never got used on either trip.  The 70-200 did not get used on one trip, I used it on the other trip specifically for an orangutan excursion.  On most walking days I would only bring the 24-120.  The other lenses stayed in the room.
