Packing light for a trip to Cambodia and Vietnam.

Lynn and I will be leaving shortly for a two week trip to Cambodia including Angkor Wat and Vietnam.  We are extremely restricted on luggage, but I wanted to bring my best Micro 4/3 tools for the photography.

So, here is my kit.  My gear includes from the top strap, tiny flash (in pouch), iPhone earbuds (in pouch), Rokinon fisheye lens, Olympus 45 mm 1.8 lens, Olympus 17 mm 1.8 lens.  Bottom  row from the left...4 Olympus batteries in pouch, 7-32gb SD cards (in NANPA pouch), Olympus OMD EM5ii camera with Olympus 40-150mm 2.8 Pro lens attached and Olympus OMD EM10 camera with 12-40mm 2.8 Pro lens attached.

All of the above packs snugly in my Lowepro bag.  Total weight 8 pounds! In addition to the great sharp photos that I get from my smaller kit I love the compactness of Micro 4/3 equipment.  My similar Nikon gear would weigh at least 3 times as much.  I am a happy camper!
