208ms shutter lag on the D4s, seriously?

Not sure where you're getting your data…
From their analysis:

I don't know about the LP-E4N but the LP-E4 battery life is much better than the stated 2000.
On a full day of sports shooting I can easily get 3000-3500 pictures per battery with IS on and LCD off.

I kept my f/4 for a while after I borrowed the f/2.8 I and then purchased the f/2.8 II, and I was sorry to let it go but it was just gathering dust.
I'm more into sports than hiking but I think good straps and backpacks can make a difference for everybody.

Can you put an extension tube between the extenders?

The forum posts mentions EOS-1D Mark IV instead of 1dx.

I'm pretty sure RX-RT should read EX-RT as well.
The same is mentioned on their site: http://www.canon.co.uk/cpstestdrive/

If you get "forbidden" then try reading it on their blog: http://xerodigital.ca/blog/

According to the EXIF it was an 85mm f/1.2L lens.

Does anyone know the MFD for the new 200-400 f4 L IS? I can't see a spec anywhere that states it.

Only 2 meter according to the focus limiter options.
To compare: 100-400 180cm, 300 f/4 150cm, 400 f/2.8 I 300cm, 400 f/2.8 II 270cm, 500 f/4 II 370cm.
Look like the 200-400 will have a pretty nice MM to go with that MFD.

If it's a family/fun occasion then I agree with "less is more", take the 24-105 and maybe a fast prime (35 or 50mm).
Also enough memory cards and batteries. A small tripod (e.g. Slik Mini-Pro) could come in handy for group shots that you want to be in too, and a remote control.
I wouldn't buy anything new just for this trip, unless it fits your general shooting style.
Make sure to keep an eye or hand on your gear in crowds.

From everything I've seen it's better than the comparable 30mm f/1.4 sigma.

The Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX DC HSM is not an option here, because the OP has a 5D and the Sigma is for APS-C cameras.

Ok so the Samyangs might be too much of a hassle.
What other lenses are there... Canon EF 28mm f/1.8 USM? Zeiss is probably too expensive.
And are there adapters for m4/3 lenses like the Leica DG Macro-Elmarit 45mm f/2.8 ASPH OIS?

Maybe just borrow the Voigtlander to see if it's the right lens for you, or try your luck on a refurb or second-hand Canon.

Focus confirmation should work with either a chip or a chipped adapter (e.g. Nikon to EOS).
The exposure will probably be more erratic. I would have to look around for people with the same camera/lens combination, maybe they can recommend a certain EMF chip or chipped adapter.
I don't have any experience with Voigtlander lenses, sorry.

The Samyang 35mm f/1.4 AS UMC looks very interesting, it beats the Canon on many levels (except auto-focus obviously).
