It’s always such a “pain” to choose what to take with me when I leave for another country, even for a few days. I have a full backpack of equipment, lenses, camera, cables, charger, laptop, filters, flashlight, everything and anything. You never know, right?
And so, tonight we’re leaving for Paris. And, of course, I have my backpack ready for a new trip, with everything possible rammed in it. I admit, I don’t know if I’m going to take my Minolta 500mm f/8 with me. I don’t know. It’s not a versatile lens like the 70-300mm G and I’m not sure I’d have the time to go for a “special walk” with it around town.
The most sensible choice would be to bring the G, the 18-55 kit lens, and my charger. You know I have a messenger bag for small loads, it could be enough. But what if I want to shoot in low light? I won’t have my 50mm f/1.4! Damn, I hate choices. You’ll know soon enough what I decide.
What about you? How do you choose? What do you usually bring along when you leave for a few days? Let me know!
