The only place I have been asked to take my camera gear out of the bag has been in Berlin a few years ago

Hi all

I am the proud owner of a K3 (which is a great camera) but I am in a bit of a quandry about which gear to take on an upcoming trip to Europe.

Basically the itinerary is this

Fly into Paris from Australia and spend 5 days in paris, then fly to Bergen in Norway for a couple of days then onto a cruise ship which takes us to London via the Arctic circle, Shetland, the Orkneys, Edinburgh then London. Then a few days in London then a smal group coach tour through the UK to Edinburgh. A few days in Edinburgh to do the Tattoo and then of to Liverpool to visit friends for a couple of days.
Then its on the Dusseldorf visiting another friend for a few days, taking in Trier, Munster then back to Paris by rail for about 10 days.

I am thinking of taking the following:
My K3 (obviously)
My 18-55 WR lens
My nifty 50MM prime
I am 2 minds about taking my Sigma 70-300. On a trip to Japan last year I took my 18-55 and my Sigma 18-200. The larger lens hardly got used.
I am also thinking of taking my Manfrotto Monopod which I have used in the past as walking support a couple of months following my knee replacement when we visited Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory.

I dont want to be too overwhelmed by gear. Should I just take the Camera and the 18-55 and the 50mm prime.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I was thinking of taking the 70-300 to take advantage of any opportunity that might crop up in the Fiorjds in Norway.

As I said any held gratefully accepted.

I did seek it out but our tour only passed by there on a Tuesday. Guess what it was shut on Tuesday. Unfortunate that.

I'd just take the 16-85 and possibly the 35mm if you need a fast lens after dark. On my recent trip to Japan I virtually only used my 18-55 WR on my K3 used my sigma 18-200 once . The larger lens added weight to what I carried. Im off to europe in July and seriously only considering my 18-55 WR and my "nifty 50"

On my recent trip to Japan with my K-3 my 18-55 WR was used most of the time. I think I attached my Sigma 18-200 once . For a kit lens the 18-55 is good value and if you don't want the extra weight of additional lenses just take it is my advice

Lamp on Pont Neuf Paris

This was taken on my wanderings around Paris when my wife was ill in Hospital in July/August 2014. It is at the tip of the Ill de la Cite where the Pont Neuf crosses the Seine. I was wandering around Paris filling in time rephotographing some of Eugene Atget's work to keep myself occupied. This is a rephotograph of one of his many Parisian pictures. Although I said the shutter speed was 1/125 it is actually only 1/100, the drop down list doesn't have that option.

While I was wandering around Paris during my enforced 8 weeks stay due to my wife's illness and hospitalization I got to the stage where the Eiffel Tower was banned from being photographed. Well never say never I was out walking one day and came across this statue "looking" at the tower I just had to capture it :)
