Thanks for the advice all! I ended up carrying too much equipment (14mm, 24-105mm, 50mm, 70-200mm, monopod, flash) but had a great time. On the plus side, carrying all that meant I burned more calories while walking around!Next time, I might just stick with the 24-105 and the 50 and leave everything else home.
Wow, that's alot to carry around! I bet you almost never touched the 70-200 ya? haha.
My most recent trip last month to the USA, i ended up only bringing my 17-40 and 24-105 and it was more than enough. I didn't even bring any tripod or spare batts of filters or anything..
In fact, i only brought either one of the 2 lenses out..i'd leave the other in the hotel…i just plan where i'll be going for that day and what i'll be shooting and decide which lens to bring out for that day…comfortable and light..
