Greetings all: Need some equipment advice as I am leaving for vacation in California soon. I own a D80 and a D300. The lenses I own are 12/24, 70/300, 18/200 and a 10.5 mm fisheye. What should I take on vacation with me. I use the D300 as my main camera with the D80 as a back-up.

Depending on how light you want to go, I'd take the 12-24 and 70-300, and the 10.5 is so small-why not throw it in as well.
Where are you headed in CA?

Is this a Family trip or a photo trip? If family take the D80 and the 18-200, I'd add the 10.5 for really wide stuff since you can "de-fish" the images and get ok wide shots. Or forget the fish and just put multiple shots together.

If this is a photo trip bring it all, or all but the 18-200 and get a 28-105 to fill the gap and get those macro shots (it's only 1:2 not 1:1 but still good).

I second what David Zvi says. It depends on what the main thrust of the trip is. The 18-200 is just the best walk-around lens for a vacation.
