Great Travel Kit

I just got back from a 12 day visit to Paris and the eastern border of France and here's what I think I know about the perfect travel kit.

My new Sony 18-135mm zoom was everything I hoped it would be. Coupled with the Sony 10-18mm zoom I had every important focal length covered. Unless Sony makes a magical super zoom lens starting at about 14mm, I'm a happy camper.

When things got dark, like inside of a winery, or church there wasn't a lens on earth that would have made much of a difference. Like, you know, not an F/1.4 prime or anything.

I needed MORE (like, MUCH MORE) light and I should have packed my Geodox TT350s flash rather than any filters or extra batteries that could have been recharged overnight.

A lot of what makes up a perfect Travel Kit depends on the person doing the traveling, where they are traveling, and how many people are traveling with them.

On my next vacation to Europe, I'll be packing a Sony a6x00 camera, a Sony 18-135 lens, a Sony 10-18 lens, a separate flash attachment, a few extra memory cards and batteries and a way to charge them. No filters, no tripod, and especially no primes.
