From Left to Right. Rear to Front.

50L - 24L II - 17-40L - 24-105L -70-200 F/4L IS - 600RT

40mm Panny - Zuikos OM 50mm 1.4 - 5D3

All gaffed up to be more incognito. I brought a Vanguard tripod but it's not in the photo and my LEE filter set for long exposures and a few landscapes.

I'll post some pics when I get back. My video and Backup camera is my trusty g15 because it didn't want to bring another dslr body.

WA 17-40 or 16-35 and fast primes as you have some surely fit well. A 70-200 seems to bulky to me. Especially in cities...

I'm back from the trip and all I have to say is... I wasn't disappointed. For those who pitched ideas for lens selections, here's the treat's from the trip. Not all are edited but these were the first edits.

My most used lenses.

1. 17-40
2. 70-200 F/4L IS
3. 50L

I didn't even use the Panny, 24-105, 24L II (Didn't want to lug it around.), or the OM 50mm. I'm very happy I didn't bring the 2.8's!!! The F/4's were already getting heavy after several hours.

Enjoy.
