Actually, I think your question makes the answer fairly obvious. The fact that you cannot envision a particular need for a heavy mid-range zoom and, therefore, question whether you should carry it indicates to me that you don't "need" it on the particular trip you are considering. That isn't to say that on some future trip you may see your needs differently and change the lens selection to include the mid-range zoom.

Only you can determine what photographic goals you have for any outing and you should select your gear to best support your goals.

Good luck,
Richard
