    Spending a week in Paris in March, essentially alone, planning to shoot shoot shoot. I want to be VERY light and mobile. Maybe take in a little video as well. So my kit: A rented Sony RX1 + Panasonic GH2 + Pany 7-14 + Pany 14-140. I've got a Pany 45 and 25 that I thought I could live without. Shooting mainly streets and landscapes. Thoughts?

    All of that aren't too heavy.

    I would probably take the 7-14, 14-140 and then use the RX1 for everything else.

    I would also take the 25 if the RX1 doesn't pan out. I would probably leave it in the hotel safe until such a time.

    I spent 5 days in Paris in November, the lens that I used the most was the 12/2. I really enjoyed it for all of the indoor shots I took in churches, museums, etc.

    I wish it was me :D
    Me and my family went there last April and it is a wonderful city for sure.
    This was my first trip without my big DSLR and heavy lenses.
    I brought E-PL3 + 14/2.5 + 20/1.8 + 45/1.8 fitted in a Domke F-5XA and it was so nice not having to haul the big rig all day long :smile:

    You can see the images here if you're interested: Paris

    Have a great trip - and take a lot of pictures!

    Paris in 2010 E-P2 w/ Voigtlander 50/1.1 (?) and adapter. Paris in 2012 OM-D w/ 12-50 kit lens. would that the 12-50 kit was 12-60, but, it ain't. Rain and wind, flawless performance.

    I think I would take the 7-14 and the 45, leaving the other zoom home along with the 25. The 7-14 will probably cover most of what you need and the 45 for slightly longer shots. :cool:
