Okay $12,500 for a single lens PLUS case. Is that better than a new 1DX ($6500) 300mm f/2.8 ($6500), and a 2X III TC ($300)? For $800 more, you get a lot more and with more reach.

Sell one one between your 5D2 or 1D3 and buy your Iphone 5 + 1DX. Problem solved.
a different answer and statement to your earlier
"I have shot them all, thanks to Canon CPS and their loan program. The 1DX is unparalleled and undisputably the best FF DSLR I've ever shot and that includes the D800, D3X, and D4."
Then I ask , in what way? Colors? DR?
1dx is the best Canon camera regarding noise and banding, I have tested 1dx yesterday regarding this issues and compared 1dx against 5dmk2 and 5dmk3, no question, the 1dx was much cleaner in the shadows.
If you then look at other parameters as color sensitivity, DR, tonal range I do not agree
au contraire! I'd suggest the best single lens to take with either of your cameras is the 28-135is for the following
reasons. It's relatively cheap to buy - around $300 - but has good enough image quality that it has been a standard package zoom with many Canon bundles. It's relatively cheap to buy so you're not going to break the
bank if it's damaged or stolen. It doesn't weigh as much as some of the alternatives suggested here and most vacations I've been on involve a lot of walking without many "rest stops". You can sell it after your vacation if it doesn't fit nicely into your long range lens plan and you won't lose much, if any, money. If you decide to take the
50 crop sensor, the 18-135 is another similarly priced option.
