    On my FF I tend to take a 24-105 and a 70-200 2.8 with a x2 or 1.4 converter for the 70-200 as that then gives me a good range.

    the 16-35 has great DoF much better than the 24-105, but the 24-105 is a great walkabout lens for the FF so I would take those, even more so if your hitting the villages on your travels

    With a 6D with two lenses I'd take a 16-35 F4 and the 70-300L. They both work really well with it and were my mainstays. I sold my 24-105 because it got virtually no use once I had the 16-35. The only minor problem with these and the 24-104 is they aren't very fast so I tended to take a 50mm 1.4 Sigma too. That said given the 6D's low light capability it's not that necessary. Another option, kind of an aloud musing would be to not take a longish zoom and get a 200mm prime instead. Enjoy the holiday!

    FWIW if I only take two lenses I take my 24-70 f2.8, which is my out and out workhorse, and the 70-200 f2.8. If I can squirrel away a 50mm f1.4 and a 1.4x converter in a shoe or two, then that sometimes justifies taking an extra pair of shoes, but I suspect yours are not as big as mine!!!

    I might explore a wider wide angle zoom sometime, but I hardly ever used my 16-35 before it was stolen, nor my 8-15, the latter being a fun lens rather than a must have.

    You will have a fantastic time!

    Everyone is going to as we see, to have different preferences, but that in all honesty is simply down to our favourite subject matter.

    Plenty to think about with your responses, so many thanks

    ...... that in all honesty is simply down to our favourite subject matter.
    And there's the rub. There may be stunning landscapes and skyscrapers but the thought of being without some kind of long reach for weeks on end is worrying- for the koala up a tree or the sneaky shot of an interesting character in the distance, is worrying. So I'll keep pondering!
