Personally, I think you need to bite the bullet and just carry both lenses. Two lenses is not a huge amount of gear, and the 100L Macro is arguably the best macro lens you can get for the Canon mount. You could rent an EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM Macro for the trip, which is smaller/lighter than the 100L, but it's not going to replace an 18-135 for walkaround use, ...


Most bags/backpacks have adjustable dividers that allow you to customize the size of a space for each item. If you only leave enough space in the bag for the camera/lens combination when the lens is fully retracted, it shouldn't creep at all. This lens has internal zoom, so it doesn't creep from gravity, but the concept is the same. Immobilize the ...


The Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens is the closest to what you desire. It isn't a true macro 1:1 lens, but it does provide .70x as well as a fairly close miniumum focusing distance of 7.9"(200mm). The image quality will far exceed the current zoom lens you have, and the macro quality is very high for a zoom or non dedicated macro. It's a great lens ...


Yes. The regulations are a bit odd, but as you are travelling to Europe, I will refer you to the UK regs: In essence you need to declare anything over 100Wh and cannot transport anything over 160Wh You cannot put spare packs in the hold, if you put the copter in the hold with a pack ...


If you don't want to carry two lenses, you might want to add an Extension Tube to use with your 18-135 STM:


I have also experienced that changing the lens is cumbersome and sometimes you tend to miss certain events while you are anxiously changing lenses That's something that you can improve by training it. A good large bag can also help, because it allows you to carry the lenses without caps1. This makes changing lenses less cumbersome: take old lens off ...


I have this bag. As Michael said you should be able to adjust the dividers and other items to give a snug fit. I don't see how it would make a difference in terms of stress whether you had the camera at the top with lens facing downwards or vice versa. Personally I have the camera at the top because I often have a water bottle in one of the side compartments ...
