Re: Are telephoto lenses good for travel?

Brilliant if you don't mind the inconvenience when not photographing. I ended up compromising and now only take my M4/3 on holiday with 12-150 (24-300 equiv). But I still enjoy dedicated days of full kit and tripod. I definitely take more long shots with my lightweight kit than I would with my heavy gear.

Some samples from a few days in Scotland this year. I think these will all be zoomed in, I may have to edit the selection. Bear in mind the 50% crop factor of the 4/3 body.

Plus one taken at the full 150mm (300 equiv) from home where I used to shoot exclusively with my old Nikon D300 but am more likely to reach for my Olympus these days.
