My wife and I will probably be taking a tour of Israel early next year. Since this is a coach tour with the usual limited space and time that goes with such, I'm trying to take the best quality/most efficient/lightest kit that I can that will fit in a Domke F802. (An oxymoron in its own right.) My normal travel kit would include a D700, 20-35/2.8, 50/1.4, and either the 80-200/2.8 or 80-400 VR and probably in this case either a 16/2.8 fish or 14/2.8. I'm wondering if there is a need for the extra weight of those larger zooms. If there are not many tele opportunities, I could easily carry the old 28-200 for extra reach when needed. (I'm well aware of the trade-offs involved.) Obviously, I could just take the 28-200 and go really light, but I would like to have some better glass--especially on the wide side. I will take the P7000 for a back-up. It goes with me everywhere when I travel for business.

What say ye who have travelled in that part of the world? Thanks for you insight.
