I haven't taken a trip without a big rig since I bought my first dslr in 2004. Until last week, when I flew to Seattle to visit my grandkids. I left the d700 at home, and traveled with the Oly pl2, 20/1.7, 45/1.8, and an adapted Nikon 105/2.5ais. I felt like a high wire act without a net... but I didn't fall. :smile: The 20 was A-OK for group shots... E-PL2    ---    20mm    f/2.5    1/100s    ISO 200 the 45 rendered delightful portraits... E-PL2    ---    45mm    f/2.5    1/800s    ISO 200 and the 105 had enough reach for kiddie soccer. E-PL2    ---       f/1.0    1/320s    ISO 200 I've decided I can tolerate a few more lightweight lenses in my u4/3 travel kit. Next trip I'll add the 14/2.5 and an adapted Nikon 55/3.5.
