next PZ lens test report: Canon EF 300mm f/4 USM L IS
#18
[quote name='HarryLally' timestamp='1303123418' post='7722']That said, having recently spent 4 days wandering around Madrid, Cuenca and Toledo in 28-30 deg heat carrying just a 5DII with a 17-40L and the 70-200L (travelling light!), the appeal of newer lighter cameras such as the GF2 or the Sony SLT A55 is growing by the hour.[/quote]



That makes about 2.1 kg you carried around to cover a focal range of 17-200 mm. I´m still trying to make hiking in combination with photography a more pleasant experience. I tried a Pana LX5 plus the ZS3/TZ7, together a weight of less than 0.5 kg with a zoom range from 24-300 mm, but I wanted to improve the long end. My latest setting was a Pana LX5 plus a GF1 with the 100-300 mm lens, that´s 1.1 kg to cover 24-600mm with a gap from 90-200 mm. Given that I rarely used the extreme long end I could save some weight and close the gap by taking the Pana 45-200 mm. Overall, it´s actually pretty comfortable to have 2 cams for different zoom lengths compared to swapping lenses. However, I could also take the nice 20 mm f1.7 Pana plus the 45-200 mm zoom for the GF1 plus the LX5 and would still be below 1.1 kg <img src='http://forum.photozone.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />
