    Depends on the nature of the trip. If photography isn't the primary mission, then I'll take either my Rolleiflex or more often, my Fuji GA645Zi and a small tripod. If I expected to need to shoot low light hand held, I'd bring a 35mm with a few fast primes. If photography is the primary mission, the full hasselbald kit plus the Fuji as a back up.

    I agree with Benjiboy about Canon F-1 but a TLR is also a good choice.

    It would depend on how I am traveling and where I am staying.
    If I plan on renting a car and will in be the country side for landscapes I would travel with my Mamiya Press Universal with a Normal and Wide, and a 35mm with 4 primes, 24mm, 50mm, 105mm and 135 or 150 (Pentax 42mm) and a good quality point and shoot.

    If I plan on staying in a city and using public transportation and doing a lot of walking I would just take a 35mm with same primes and a point and shoot.

    Other option for light travel is Sigma SA 9 and Sigma SD 14 with 2 zooms 28 to 105, 70 to 210 and a 50mm prime.

    Unless you're going on a safari.... A Normal and a Wide angle lens will do 99.99999% of shots for me.

    I'd go medium format (6x6 or 6x7). Any camera with a 80mm lens and a 50/60mm wide option.
    I currently own a GF670 and that package has covered 90% of shots I take. Would love to have a GF670W to add to my next trip but at current prices I guess that means either the camera or the vacation!

    Personally, the less options I have, the better! So I'd say carry as little gear as possible. This isn't a comment on weight concerns but rather of a mind set.
    While travelling, especially to a location I've never been to, I do get visually overwhelmed by the plethora of novel possibilities. Making choices as to what gear to use for which picture became a burden and a source of anxiety that just has no place in a trip.

    I'm a firm believer that in any creative process less options is more. I have seen this to be true on more than one occasion and on more than one medium.

    I always carry 2 bodys when travelling because if one craps out on you the lenses are just so much junk to lug about.

    Rolleiflex 2.8E, with a second as a backup. K.I.S.S. As an alternative, my Contax G1 & G2 plus 21, 28,45 and 90 lenses. Not so simple, but it gives me a wide range of focal length options. It all depends on if I've been there before or not. If it's my first time, I'd more likely take the Contax kit. For a re-visit, the Rolleis for sure. If I'm in glutton-for-punishment mode, the Canham 5x7 with the 4 3/8" W.A. Dagor, 240 Heliar, and 12" Commercial Ektar (or maybe the 450mm Nikkor-M).
