For off-camera flash I love the orbis ring flash. It produces a rather soft light, more similar to a softbox than to a traditional ring flash. It's not really cheap but pretty small and robust. It also fits various brands of flash guns.

One other point worth noting is that the benefits of an ND grad can be derived in software. Before I had my adapter, I bracketed shots and used the ND grad feature in Adobe RAW to replicate the use of an ND grad.
Robert, could you tell me what kinda head mount the Zörk adapter uses. Is it the Arca-Swiss type or the Manfrotto quick release type? Thank you in advance.
Thanks to all who have responded. Many very good points have been made. I'm going with the 70-200 f4L IS to take care of the longer focal lengths, the 100 f2.8L IS for macro/portrait, the 17-40 f4L and the 24 f1.4L for wide angle/landscape. On longer hikes where weight is a big concern, I will only take the 17-40 and 24 f1.4. I appreciate all of your insights and comments.

Some amazing effects as the weather transitioned from fog to sun (and quite often back again quite quickly!).
