I am too considering the lens. Most of my usage will be landscape and travel and i wonder how it feels after a long period of time. So if you have indeed rented it i would like to hear about your conclusions

I have owned this lens for a long time. The bulk in storage is more of a challenge than the weight. But, a couple considerations. If you are smaller in size, the weight will bother you a lot more. Also, if using this on a tripod for landscape, you will want a very sturdy head as the lens weight can be a lot to lock in.

I am rather big (180cm, 96 kilos) i think i can handle. The main consideration for me is that it will be my main lens during travels. If i am worried if someone steals it i will never shoot. I think a lens that big is an attention grabber

It can be. I have had people ask me about it at vacation spots.

I am considering the following kit for travel. Could you give me some pointers? 24-105 F4 or the 24-70 F2.8, 70-200 F2.8 and a 35mm prime. I was thinking that if i had the 28-70 i wouldnt buy the 35 but the weight as my main lens, the size and perhaps the attention i would get (unfortunately the wrong kind of attention) makes me hold back.
