Ill just jump in with my recommendations. For lenses go as wide as you can and as telephoto as you want, stay away from the middle mm range (30mm-70mm) it looks like every other snapshot camera on the market.
In my travel backpack I will pack:
Vivatar 17-35AF f1.8
Sigma 80-200AF f2.8
Nikon SB-28 Flash
Nikon D100 Remote
Packet Tripod (REI)
2- 1gig GIG memory
I would love to have a camera bag but when you start to pack in all the clothes, train tickets, on and off aircraft, and now my 2 kids, a backpack is great.
I use third party lenses and a D100 body because travel can be very hard on gear and if something happens to the lenses I just replace them and the camera body the same. I can be as free to create, as I want.
Ill update this blog often so check back!
