    The a7iii is a beast. Set the bar really.

    Allright, the small body of the A7 III is truly travelable. But what about the giant lenses? You break your back.

    You’ll need a charger for the camera as well. Sure a phone/Micro USB or USB-C device will do, but buyers beware you do NOT get a battery charger with the A7III. Love the look of the bag, but it shouts CAMERA BAG, especially with the Manfroto logo on it. Not sure I’d recommend this bag for a trip in India, especially the tourist hotspot that is Agra. I took an A9 with the 24-240 to Vietnam earlier this year and it was magic, it’s a lousy lens, but good enough for travel, I agree with another comment hear, all that f/2.8 GM glass is very heavy. Also 16-35 AND a 24-70. If I were going with a top lens set up I might go for the Sony 11-24 G lens and the 24-70 (maybe the F/4 Zeiss instead, although I have only used the GM and love it – but it’s heavy!). I reiterate. The Sony 24-240 is great for travel. Just one last comment; the grip extension, which I also have can be loosened and swung out of the way to get to the battery. I love it and it is always on the camera when the VG-C3EM isn’t in use. Costly for what it is though. All my gear came from WEX Commercial – good team 🙂
