At some point, on any given day, you think how it would have been nice to have some different lens with you. Doesn’t matter what’s in the bag or the fact you can’t possibly carry everything.

‘I wish I had the 100-400’ with me. I was shooting 150-600…but still.

The birds were coming by a little too close and the gear was getting a little too heavy.

Of course I did have an 18-400 with me but it’s focus is not as fast.

None of it would have made a difference but I remember the thought.

  1. Ah, Ted, the eternal struggle to always have the right gear with you. Most of us are at an age at which we are physically unable to carry around all of our kit with us all of the time. How many lenses are enough? Do I need a second body with me so I don’t have to change lenses? Should I carry a super-zoom point and shoot to supplement my DSLR. What about my cell phone camera? In some ways I envy minimalist photographers who have a limited set of lenses with little to no overlap in focal length. It sounds like me where you suffer somewhat from the infamous Gear Acquisition Syndrome with which I too am plagued.

    1. LOL. Something close, but getting better. Actually we are getting rid of gear, and for short hikes I’m good with only what fits in my pocket. A road trip like this, always second guess what I have on the trip.

      Now your buddy however… You know she just bought the 100 prime, she also just added a second DSLR… which she carries with everything else. LOL

    2. Yes, she mentioned to me that she is now carrying a second 7D Mark II around with her. I will generally have 2-3 lenses with, but have not yet tried carrying two DSLRS at the same time. πŸ™‚

    3. I’m afraid I might have to make a choice some day. The temperatures in a marsh/swamp could reach 100 ! The rule is if you go down β€˜we divey up your stuff’. A dilemma 😳😳😳.
