    Alright, I'll be spending about 15 days in the UK. London for sure the rest is up in the air but probably a mix of smaller towns and one or two bigger cities. I plan on shooting large RAW files and some HD Video (more than you'd think). Here's what I'm bringing:

    BODY
    5D Mark II​

    LENSES
    24-70mm f2.8
    17-40mm f4
    50mm f1.4 (kinda not sure about bringing this one)
    hoods for all lenses​

    MEMORY
    172 GB of Compact Flash:
    32 GB CF x 4
    16 GB x 2
    8 GB x 1
    4 GB x 1​

    POWER
    3 Batteries + Charger

    MISC:
    UV filters
    77mm Polarizing filter (fits both zooms)
    cleaning stuff
    Crumpler 7 Million Dollar home side bag for all gear

    Things left at home:
    40D body
    Tripod
    Sinking barge (photoback pack)
    Laptop

    What am I forgetting? Thoughts on ditching the 50mm?

    Any advice on places to visit in the UK?

    Thanks,

    If you have a 110V AC charger you're likely to fry it when you plug it in over there. You might want to get an adapter or another one for their power supply.

    Hi ...was there last summer...it rained all of the the time...took my 5D mark II...was a little heavy...only took one lens 2-105L and a Metz 58i flash. Make sure you get a power converter and a waterpoof bag. On my trip this year I am taking a lighter but incredible camera...the Canon T2i and still fussing about which lens to take.
