I asked several months ago, what lenses to take to France. Well after shooting in several different local sites over the past months with various combinations, I have now have my 2007 travel kit assembled.

I was considering getting rid of my 80-200 f2.8, but I did a lot of shooting with a buddy and his 18-200. For me the difference between my images and his (and he's pretty good, just had several images in the Nature's Best at the Smithsonian) were just to great (he just bought a 70-200VR to fix the differenc .

So until I upgrade to the next version of the D200, here's my travel kit:

D70
Nikkors:
12-24
80-200 f2.8 with KenkoPro1.4 (just couldn't file the tabs off either my E1.4 or 1.7)
Canon 500D
Sensor dust travel brush and blower, several batteries and lots of cards.

All comfortable in a LowPro AW2 (love the rain coat, saved me the last two travel seasons).

I just tested the 80-200 f2.8 with the Kenko and was quit pleased wide open, really good even compared to my 300.

After two years of buying lenses (actually sold one, darn) and trying various combinations, for me this size bag and the versitility of these items is the perfect travel kit.

What is your minimal travel kit for this year?
