My wife and I are taking a vacation trip to Ireland the end of April. I'm not sure how much of my photo equipment I should take. If I take my entire digital SLR outfit, I won't be able to carry it on walking tours, etc. My primary interest is seascapes/landscapes; but I do plan on taking my fast 50mm lens for taking available light shots in local pubs (which we both inbibe in). Should I take a flash and off camera extension cords? I will take a 17~40mm f4L for landscapes/seascapes, with polarizer and ND grads. So definately, I will take the 50mm and WA zoom. The questionable items are 70~200 f4L, 100mm f2.8 macro lens, a 400 f5.6L, and 1.4X and 2X extenders. I will take a monopod and lightweight "travel" tripod in my suitcase. I can't imagine needing a macro and long lenses, so was thinking of leaving them home. Any experienced travellers to Ireland? Given my photo interests, what would you take, in an effort to travel light? The camera body is a 1Ds, and you know what they weigh, so weight is a concern.
Thanks in advance.
