@ Ripolini - some of your marvels look like Tirol, southern Alps in autumn - I love these leaves and golden forests! And the ancient town as well! Great moods.

Thank you.
Previous pictures were taken in Central Italy. However I love Tirol and I spend summer vacations in Osttirol. Here are few pictures from last summer:

Ripolini, that first shot is really great!

Thanks Jochen, from your T-tour I see how my Zeiss collection gets more and more expensive: I'll need to revisit all the places I have already been to without it... Nice BW from SGim as far as I think but possibly elsewhere too! I love stone textures too! Just like clouds.

Thank you. It's indeed San Gimignano.
As much as I love all my Zeiss lenses, I'm actually thinking of selling some. It's a strange thought, but after every trip I'm so tired of lugging them around. The results make up for it, but try telling that to my back/shoulder.

This is not a tragedy, I'd look at it in the flow of life, do change what you want to change. We all gain and loose all the time.
I do still have shoulders strong enough though... and I finally optimized my focusing technique with the MF Zeiss on the 5D3: as "simple" as Zacuto Z & Magic Lantern @3 with magic focus. So, no missed focus since.

Jochen, I see you now have your Zeiss 35/1.4 for sale. That surprises me as you were very very enthousiast about this lens. And I could see that in some great pictures of you.

Zeiss lenses are indeed quite heavy and I can understand that it is sometimes too heavy. I now have replaced my shoulder bag with a rucksack and that did the trick for me. With the shoulder bag I couldn't walk large distances, but with the rucksack it is no problem at all. Even added with my new ZF.2 15/2.8 is is still a piece of cake. Perhaps you could give that a try.

Another thing I do (and did) is being selective with the lenses I take with me on a multi-day trip. I try to figure out what lenses are absolutely necessary for the place I am going to. Then I just takes those lenses (most of the times only 3) with me in a small case. For a trip to Prague this summer I only took the 21/2.8, 35/2 and 100/2. This worked out quite well.

Yes you're right Wiseguy, we even had a few heated discussions about it (which I don't mind BTW, in the end they're only lenses).
I love the 35/1.4 ZE, but the size and weight are starting to bother me. For my last trip it stayed at home and I'm mostly using it for planned shoots now.
Being selective with lenses is a good tip for everyone. I seldom take all my lenses with me.
A backpack indeed helps a lot, but still not enough for me because I have problems with my back.
I recently bought a Fuji X-E1 and I enjoy such cameras more for travelling. When I now look at my 5DII-35/1.4 combo it looks and feels even more huge.
Maybe I'll replace it with a Sony RX1. Small, FF and a nice rendering 35mm Zeiss lens. We'll see...

Jochenb--
Here's what I'm doing, something along the idea of what you're doing only even a bit more extreme.

There are two of us, friends since grammar school, who shoot together most of the time. We decided several months ago to only take one lens with us each time we went out to shoot. Sometimes we had a planned location, other times we just drove around looking for something interesting. Quite often while framing a shot one or the other of us, sometimes both, would comment that we wished we'd brought a different lens. But the plan was to see what you could do with what you had in hand.
The more we did this the better the shots seemed to get. Instead of fooling around changing lenses we have to find a way to compose with the lens we have. In the long run both of us feel we are learning to see things in a completely different way.
We both think the challenge is making us better photographers.

Oh I fully agree and I often do this myself. For small trips I often take only one lens. Most of the time a 35 or 50mm.
I like fairly compact kits, because it limits your options.
However, for larger trips I take more lenses because I'll maybe visit those places only once in a lifetime.
I'm sure I'll figure it out.

Sorry Wilhelm. Probably getting carried away with my 27" iMac. Will size it down in future.

First two - recent shots; last two from September 2012 in Prague










Rare in Vancouver, but it does happen every few years (for a day or more)
