Hi Frank,

Yes, when we were there in '08 I used the 21 the most, and on the M8 it is 
just barely adequate. I was thinking if I take the D4, then my 24 to 70 
would probably be just right, and maybe the 100 Micro.  For the M8 I have 
the 21, 28, 35, and the 50 would probably cover most situations.

Forget the telephotos..... Nothing is far enough away... ( except building
details)  take the widest lenses you can.....  ( I think you have a 21 ASPH
Elmarit?)  It will barely be wide enough.

Exception.. a 75 or 90.... just for reaching out.....

( My experiences in Europe call for much wider lenses than I ever
thought.... Our last trip was to Belgium and Holland, and the 21 was too
My most used lens was the 50..... but the 28 of the TriElmar was #2.....

Or I may just bring the M8 and lenses, which is what i did back in 2008 when
we were there for only 2 days.  Looking forward to seeing everyone.
