Before we married, my wife did exactly that when going to Ghana for VSO. She wore both her coats with her shoes in a pocket, and wellington boots on her feet!

Re: Astro photo Lens decision.

Good idea..Now I got to figure out how to hand that 15" laptop around my neck (joking only)

Camera with the heaviest lens on my neck..but mft are so light except for that 7-14. Strap those filters to the camera strap but that still leaves me with the laptop, the chargers and battery. Thank goodness for Em1.2 only 1 extra block is all I need.

It's not so much as the flight it's the hike that requires the gears to be brought along. The 25 min uphill hike to the viewing point. The items would be the tripod, the filters, cable release and lenses not forgetting the camera.

Re: Astro photo Lens decision.

Then maybe it would be nice to invest into a good hiking bag instead

Just back from a short trip. I was whacked S$60 for over weight baggage. 3 of us and was over that by just 5kgs. The security insist on weighing every single bag. I had my camera EM1.2 and a GX8, 12-40-12, 35-35-100, Laowa7.5, Samyang 8 FE, and my Laptop. The other bag was some chocolates, and the 3rd, an ipad, a Kindle and a PSP. a drag on with some books. all totaled to 26kgs. They insist we check in that drag-on and charge us

These budget airlines just wants to make money. Later we saw another lady boarding with 2 drag-ons.
