  • Favorite body / lens combo when you have to pack light

    Just wondering what body / lens combo you guys prefer to use for your "take anywhere" setup. Sometimes you just don't have time or space to pack all of your gear. Are you taking a zoom lens for more versatility? Or something like a 50mm to save space and weight? Lately, I've been taking my D300s with 35mm f1.8. I personally like this setup because it produces much sharper images than my 18-200mm and is a lot lighter and more compact. Obviously not as flexible, though.

    I usually pack my 6D with 17-55mm f/2.8 lens. Sometimes I will take my 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 instead if I know I will need something really wide.
    You have 20 seconds to comply.

      D5300 w/ 35mm 1.8 lens. The kit lens that came with the camera is more versatile and pretty light, but doesn't have a very wide aperture.

        I usually take my T7i with 18-200 MM, unless I know for sure I won't need anything that long, in which case I will slap on the 18-55 that came with the camera. I usually rock it raw dog with no case, no strap.
