The 70–200 Conversation

So, I haven’t done one of these in a while. I was con­vers­ing with Juan about what gear to pack for my Big Island trip next week. Com­ing up with at least these:

  • 20D + SD400
  • 17–35/2.8–4
  • 28–75/2.8
  • bat­ter­ies + charg­ers

He then sug­gest­ed to bring the 70–200 as well. Now, for those non-shut­ter­bug geeks, this lens is huge and heavy but it packs a wal­lop.

Any­ways, here’s how it end­ed:

juan: (-) addi­tion­al weight w/ the above pack
juan: ?!?!?!?!?!?
juan: what good is work­ing out if you can’t car­ry an extra 10 pounds?!
juan: wuss
juan: I’ll fight you
