Going to Hawaii, big island and Oahu. It is a family trip. I will not get time to set up a tripod and take long exposure photos of stars or volcanoes etc because I will be chasing a 4 yo...among others. I will be trying to take a lot of pictures of my family all over the islands.
I will use a 6D
My gut reaction is to take the 24-70 and use that almost exclusively.
Then I thought I might want something a little wider like the 17-40...or even use it as an excuse to purchase the new 16-35 F4. Then I thought I could use the 14 2.8 samyang if I happenned to be seeing a great sunset. Then I thought what If I'm tryin to take pictures in really low light the 50 1.4 would be usefull. Of course for outdoor portraits my go to lens has been the 70-200 2.8 ii which I love so I shouldn't leave that behind. Alternatively maybe I should rent a 70-200 f4 for weight. I do have the 1.4 extender. Should I rent/buy macro?
Oh and at pearl harbor you aren't allowed any bags so I can only have one lens. Do I need a superzoom for that day...what should I get?
Lastly, I do have the tamzooka ordered...though who knows when that will arrive.
Mostly I want to take great photos of my kids in Hawaii.
