Holiday packing help
« on: September 03, 2013, 03:10:58 AM »
I'm going on holiday to feurtaventura in a few weeks. Just a standard beach holiday plus we might go to the zoo.

I'm having trouble deciding what to take to cover most bases.

This is my kit.

5d3
24 1.4
35 1.4
40mm pancake
50 1.4
85 1.2
100 macro l
70 200 2.8
1.4x tc
120 400
60d
17 55
1020
8mm fisheye

I'm thinking ill leave the 60d and just stick with 5d3.

The 70200 is a must for the zoo plus the tc.

But I can't decide what else to take. I generally walk around with 1 prime at a time and leave everything else at the hotel (because its too hot to carry loads of stuff ). Plus I hve my rx100 to cover arm length cheesy holiday snaps.

Any opinions?
Bodies: 5d mk iii, 60d
Primes: 24L 1.4, Sigma 35 1.4, 40 pancake, 50L 1.2, 85L 1.2 ii, 8mm fisheye, lensbaby, 100L macro.
Zooms: 16-35 2.8 ii, 24-70 2.8 ii, 70-200 2.8 is ii, 120-400

As always: It depends on your shooting style. I would take the a wide angle, normal and tele.

24mm
40mm / 50mm (I love the 40mm for the size on the 5d)
70-200mm
5D III / 7D
UWA - Supertele
