The 24-70 II is a very fine lens indeed. Now is a new option if one did not get it during the Xmas sale. I did get it back then and I am very pleased with its performance as I am with Canons products in general. I have not used the 24-105 since getting the new lens. Kind of illustrate its potential to me at least.

A New York too. Safety will not be a concern, if acting with slightest common sense. Go take the East River Ferry - 12$ day pass - and visit LIS, Williamsburg and Brooklyn Bridge Park (be sure to try the vanilla Chocolate Chip at at BKL Ice-cream Factory) and then pass the bridge by foot and proceed to city hall, WTC, Battery Park, Wall St perhaps a heli ride before heading back to midtown from pier 11. Enjoy 

Lenses / Re: 70-300mm F/4-5.6L IS or 70-200mm F2.8 VC?

I have both. They are very different though and for different purposes. The 70-300L is a super general telephoto lens. Very much recommendable. The 70-200 has f2.8 and is much heavier and clumsy. If weight matters you will be happy with the 70-300. If f2.8 and best possible IQ matters then 70-200 us your choice.

I use the Canon 35 IS for low light shooting in NY. And it is a very good lens for that purpose as well as in general. Compared you to the 24-105 you will gain in IQ and handiness but of course loose some flexibility. I would probably just stay with the 24-105 for your travel.

The suggestions already mentioned by others are top notch. Also roof top bar at 230 5th avenue is a very good spot for Empire State. Personally I would opt for Top of the Rock.

All would do in my view. Like the bridge photo best. But if you are in doubt then probably you have not found the best pick yet. If you are in doubt, odds are judges will be too. Good luck

A CPL is a must have. I recommend BW KSM and the best Hoya's. The build quality on the. BW is second to none and made in copper.

Adjusted my camera accordingly on a custom function. Think it will come in handy in many situations. Will probably adjust settings to fit my shooting along the way. Thanks again

B&W F pro for sure if you got the $. Otherwise Hoya is more or less half price and honestly I don't see the diffence in IQ except with the CPL. But build quality the BW is way ahead from anything else I tried.

Think Tank street walker pro will also do the trick.

Lenses / Re: 24-70/2.8 Canon or Tamron: Which did you choose and why?
« on: February 01, 2014, 07:02:17 PM »
Canon 24-70L 2 all the way. Still got the 24-105 sitting there on the shelve looking a bit angry with me though.

Really enjoy the 70-300L. Such a great lens. Only get the 70-200L2 if you absolutely need f2.8.

+ for the 35 IS it is very competent. For the tele you could also go with the 70-300 L which delivers outstanding image quality.
