For zoos, addt'l telephoto has always been useful so I bring my 70-200.

24-70L is a great lens and provides a decent wide angle w/ more telephoto than the 16-35L. I guess a question would be how much focal length do you normally shoot with?

Also, where will you be staying? You could always bring all 3 and leave behind 1 or 2 at your place of shelter. If a hotel, lock them up in your luggage.
We haven't quite decided on a hotel yet, but I'm thinking I have to bring the bazooka, if only for the zoo. Like you recommended, I'll leave it at the hotel when it's not needed.

Thanks for the tips.
