Advice for Travel Photographers
« on: October 08, 2020, 07:39:58 pm »

Interesting article and thanks for explaining why I moved from my Canon 5D to Olympus OMD.  I get similar performance with one half to one third of the weight.  Don’t get going on equivalence, it cuts both ways.  I quite enjoy having more DOF in my macro and telephoto work and I get it at lower ISO and/or faster shutter speeds than FF for the same effect.  I can carry my camera and 3 f1.8 prime lenses for a total weight of around 0.7kg.  The 5D with the 300 f4L and 2x TC weighs in at just under 2.5 kg vs just over 0.8 kg for my EM10 ll with the 75-300.  The gear takes up less space as well which is important considering all the extra carry on baggage restrictions.

Other travel setups I like include the EOS-M with the 22mm f2 and 55-250, a Rebel with the 10-22, 17-55 f2.8 and 70-200 f4 L IS.  The new R bodies look interesting, but there are not enough light weight lenses to make a manageable travel system.

Once you have gone light weight and small size, it is difficult to go back!
