    wide, standard, telephoto and maybe 2 bodies should be about all you need. Don't go overboard. Less is more. I go with a couple small Leicas, 21, 28, 35 and 50mm. I'd use the 28mm 90% of the time though, so I could use to get rid of a couple of lenses. If I travelled with one camera and the 28mm, I would be more than happy.

    My choice would be 2 bodys with 24mm f2 35mm f2, 105mm 2.5 , and a 200mm lens if you need to pick out details, I shoot a lot of street, and the lens I use the most is the 35mm f2.

    Exactly me too. I bring either a 35mm or 50mm and just work with what I've got.

    If you have acces to anything bring a small zoom. Otherwise just go with a 35mm.

    Depends a bit on my destination and mode of travel. I carried my Canon A-1 with the cheapo 35-70 f/3.5-4.5 along with the 50mm f/1.4 (both about the same size) along with an Elph Jr APS camera for snapshots on a two week trip to Italy. Light and compact. If I had been more photo-oriented and could stand more bulk and weight, my 35-105 f/3.5 would replace the 35-70, but that bigger zoom is large and heavy.

    Unless my trek was totally about taking pictures (including no family/friends to provide constant distraction), I can't imagine dealing with a half dozen different lenses.

    When I went to school over there, I took too many lenses and spent more time figuring out what to do and stopped taking in where I was. I'd recommend a wide and a normal. So a 24mm and 50mm. Should be plenty. I returned to visit friends and I took just a 50mm and really, it was perfect.

    Less is more!

I'm traveling very light and want one camera and perhaps three lenses. I have some Nikkors and can get my hands on just about anything I don't have. I'm only interested in B&W street stuff but my wife is an architect and she'll want elevation shots and maybe details.

    What has worked for you? I'm thinking 50/1.4, 28/2.8, 20/2.8 and mmmmaybe a 105 because I can't imagine not having one. A 200/4 is pretty light, but...

    Open to any thoughts,

    I spent a month in Germany with a Nikon F, LunaSix, and 35/50/105 lenses. Worked very well, except there were about 4 pictures that I wanted a 28 for.

    My lenses would be 28, 50, 100, but that is a function of what I own. I have a light 300mm f6.3 which I would be tempted to bring. I love to "tele-mash" city scenes.

    For touring I travel with a 28mm 2.8 35 to 90 3.5 to 5.6 and a 105mm 2.8
    If trip will include landscapes or wildlife 28 to 105 4.5 to 5.6 and a 300 5.6 prime
    If trip will be mosttly indoor shooting like a musume or the like 28 2.8 50 1.4 and 105 2.8 or 85 2.0
    In addtion to the 35mm I also carry a Pentax K 2000 for with a 17 to 55, if a lot of bad weather is expected I will include a Minolta Weathermatic other times Canon III G 1.7, one flash. I usally take a SF1N, and PZ70 which I leave in my luggage for a backup.
