    Keep it simple F100 and the 50mm AF-D 1.8.

    Think of yourself as HCB in the 21st century with AF.

    take the f100. the modern style will be easier switching between the 300 and the 100. Also if someone else besides you needs to take a film picture, the 100 can be used just like the 300, P mode

    I'm not a fan of the lenses you have for the F100 but I have tested pre-Ai 35mm and 50mm lenses and they are fabulous.

    You have a problem with the 50 1.8 AF-D? I can't imagine why.

    Care to be specific?

    All of the VR lenses don't have aperture ring, it's almost useless with FE. I think OP has figured that it's better to bring D300 + F100. If I were him I'll bring 70-300VR for the extra reach on cropped sensor DSLR and 50mm + wide angle for the F100.

    Assuming you have other lenses you are taking for the D300, if I had your equipment, I would take the F100, the 28-105mm, and a few rolls of 36-exposure film to backup my D300.

    Frankly the 70-300 for the D300 is total overkill in a place like Spain and Portugal, unless you're going to photograph migrating sea birds or something. Almost everything you'll want to photograph will best be served by your wide angles or wide-medium tele zooms. Frankly, I'd just take one or the other, the F100 with the 28-105 and MAYBE the 50 for low light, or the D300 with the 16-85 lens. Too much fussing back and forth becomes a distraction. Even though the device form factor is the same, you have to think differently about how you expose with each of them - you've got to be very conscious of SBR and highlight values with the DSLR, which is not necessarily so with the F1000 (if you're using negative film).

    I travel a fair bit and always bring a telezoom. It really depends on personal preference and shooting style. I like longer focal lengths, I can zoom in on little details of architecture, for example, or get candid portraits from a distance.
    I'd take the D300 and the two zooms, the 50, the F100 and the 28-105. I might not bring it all all the time though.

    Last trip I went on I took the kitchen sink and came home with very satisfying negatives to print. After much travelling I've sort of decided that taking the lightest camera isn't really for me - because I'll always end up wanting bigger negatives. So now I drag around a 5x4" field camera kit (mostly wider lenses), and on days when I lack the enthusiasm to lug that about, I take a 6x8cm rangefinder with a standard lens - a great street photography camera. I am sure my motivation will ebb as I get older, but right now the reward is getting home with that film...

    Somedays, walking up hills, I hallucinate about carbon fibre tripods, and miniature spot meters...

    In summation - take the camera you 'want' to take.
