Well, that was not my intention, anyway.

I was just comparing the weight of two sets of lenses and cameras assuming they are different.
Antonio, of course, I know, I was just joking!

Perhaps I am wrong...
You're right!

This is not a relevant argument, I agree for the weight, but for the rest, I'm sure you're demanding at least as much as my clients…
You will not want to miss a shot… So yes, bring the best body with one or two of your best lens.

I do not completely agree with Asher, a long focal lens cannot be just replaced by cropping, a long focal lens has other aspects than just zooming in… otherwise, you also just need to walk to the right distance… which is still not the same effects, this different way of framing a long way subject have different results.
I know you know : )

Bon voyage Antonio, we're waiting for your images!
