Hi all Canon-shooters!
I'm about to do a sort of a travel dream in october. Will be traveling to these places:
- Great barrier reef (compact with under water housing)
- New Zeeland
I'm going to bring a Canon 5D mk3 aswell as my compact camera.
Now I'm thinking of what lenses I should bring and if there is any lens that I should get for a trip like this.
Currently I have:
- Sigma 15mm fish eye
- Canon 16-35/2.8
- Canon 35/1.4
- Canon 50/1.8
- Canon 70-200/2.8 IS II
- Canon 85/1.2
- Canon 100/2.8 IS Macro
- Canon 135/2
- Canon 1.4x extender
When I want abroad to shoot last time I brought my 16-35, 50 and 135mm. it's a little complicated to switch lenses all the time when the sun is about to set.
That's why I've thought of getting perhaps the 24-105/4 to bring instead of only primes.
Since I'm going to shoot a lot of pictures with big tall buildings in Dubai I'm thinking that a Tilt Shift should be a good investment that I can continue to use later on. I've tried that 24 TS-E, but I'm thinking of the 17mm.
Just to clarify: I'm doing this trip mostly to shoot pictures for my portfolio and to get new clients, not so much tourist-shooting. So I'm aiming for pictures that clients (magazines, hotels, travel agency, real estates etc) will like and not so much for my own vacation album.
What whould you bring on a trip like this?
I'm thankful for all input!
