Travel Weight Restrictions


My wife and I are going on a bucket-list trip to Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands in a few months.

We are each limited to 15 pounds of carry-on luggage.

I am asking for advice, but I would most appreciate advice based on my preferences, not on yours. For instance, I love my 24-105, and rarely use my 16-35. If you prefer the opposite for general use, that\'s fine, but please don\'t try to convince me that the 16-35 should be my general-purpose lens, cuz it won\'t be helpful.

In my ideal world, I would like to take the following of my equipment:

Canon 5D Mark III
Canon 16-35 f/2.8L II (good for night photography and wide angles at Machu Picchu)
Canon 24-105 f/4L (great all-purpose lens; if I could bring only one lens, this would be it)
Canon 70-200 f/2.8L (for the many times we\'ll be off-shore at the Galapagos)
Sony RX100 II
Canon 2xIII

My wife probably can help make it work (she\'s a gem).

I would be grateful for any help people can offer, based either on personal experience (what lenses do people use? How to maximize the carry-on?).

I do have a photographer\'s vest, and am willing to carry on a lens or two that way, if that works.

I also would be willing to consider renting a lens (like the 28-300) if that would make sense.
