25,000$ - 1 Leica M9-P hermes edition


4x Canon 1Dx's  8)

Not really: in the video they show the big set - over 50.000 $ ... the 25.000 $ set is body only + one lens (Sumilux) not the whole set with 3 lenses... so its like a whole Canon lens set (600mm 400mm 300mm etc ... ) + 2 1DX  ;-)

Lenses / Re: Italy Trip Lens Advice - wide angle

Just to remind you the OP said he wants to take interior pictures of churches. With an f4.0 lens like the 17mm TSE he would need a tripod in any case for this. Even ISO 3200 to 6400 is not enough to get handheld shots without motion blur if the places are quite dark like most churches there...   

I can't think of any more options to add...

You forgot about every option which would mention a Nikon D800 ...  ;D

I will be taking my first trip to Italy late this summer and will be visiting  Rome, Florance, Chique Terre, and Venice.  I'm hoping to pack light and will be traveling with my 5Diii and 24-105L at a minimum.  I'm looking for some advice on a wide angle lens choice for the trip.

I would like to be able to capture good pics inside churches and in the small to large squares as well as the grand vistas like inside the coliseum.  I will not be traveling with a tripod so that will make panos much more difficult. 

I currently have the Canon 16-35L ii but I'm curious if this is the right choice.  I've been eyeing the sigma 15mm fisheye for some time and thought that this might be a better choice? 

My experience with the 16-35 with indoor and architecture shots is that perspective usually causes slanted walls and other distractions.  Would I really be much worse off with a fisheye?

Thanks in advance for the advice!

Tripod is a 100% must inside most churches if they let u use one and for most evening shots - I just did an Italy trip - here are some of my pictures:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/chrisk1982/sets/72157629751680788/with/7402235152/

Still having about several hundred pictures to upload from that trip.

Lenses I used with the 5D MK III Sigma 12-24mm HSM II, Canon 17-40mm f4.0L 24-70mm 2.8L and 70-200mm f2.8 IS2 ...

If the distortion of the 16-35mm II is a problem get PTlens and correct in post. For the TS-E 17 you will def need a tripod for about very shot as it is quite time intense to set up and you need to be quite precise when setting up ... This is one of worst lenses for handheld shooting ...

What also usually works is if you use one of these iced thermal packs for camping or holding food cold in summer and let the lens rest on it with the filter ring having contact with the cold iced surface of the pack for about 5-10 min. Usually the filters goes off without any problem afterwards and you won't need any mechanical force ...

Thank you.

Will 24 - 70 be sufficent for most of the shots or should I still plan for a wider lens?

You should also get a ND1000 filter to get some smoothness into the motion of the waterfalls - better is to get several NDs like 400 & 1000 and GND 0.9 and/or 0.6 so you can adjust the smoothness level in the water motion ...

Does the Sigma 120-300 take the Canon teleconverters? I like the look of this lens. Right now, my Canon 300 f4 IS lives on my 7D as the equipment I use for maximum reach. I also use the 1.4 II TC when I need more reach. It's pretty good, especially with good light. This is one of the cheapest ways to get this type of reach and still maintain decent quality. 420mm at 5.6 in a decent size package.

There is also the Sigma 150-500 to consider.

I tried the 120-300 OS with a Canon III x2 on a 5d MkIII. Works OK and gives you up to 600mm f5.6 ...

the Sigma 150-500 is no comparison to the 120-300 ... It feels kind of toy lens against the former. the 120-300 F2.8 OS (new one!!!) can rival the Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS II in sharpness if you get a good copy ... There are several reviews online that confirm this.
