I'd go with a Ricoh GR if I were hiking. Superlight, truly pocketable and great image quality for the price and size.
My current kit for week-long hikes in is 5Dmk3, Voigtländer 20mm, Canon 40mm and 70-300L, plus Ricoh GR. Works pretty well for me.
I traveled to Spain and Italy over a year ago and only used the sigma 35 art. Heres the link
Simply beautiful! (So is your female model.) My only primes are a 50 and 100 ... these make me want to invest in a 35!
Thank you JonAustin. The lovely model is my wife. She too likes photography I really suggest the 35 for walk around I also use a 50 and love the 35 because you can frame the subject with a nice background. 24 is too wide for me to frame the subject and 50 is to close. The sigma 35 art is really something special it killed my 24-70 vii in terms of contrast and colour.
How many images do you need to capture in a session/day/whatever? Personally, with cameras that have a single card slot, I have two equal-sized cards, when one is full I swap them, transfer the images to the computer, and leave them on the second card until they're backed up from the computer. That means have two copies of each image from the time I first transfer them. I format each card when it goes back in the camera. That way, I also have an emergency extra card.
So, if 16 GB covers a shooting period, IMO 2 x 16 GB is better.
I usually end up selling them on ebay. My lenses are always in top shape with sample images, or if there is a small issue, I describe it. I get a very good price on ebay, but their fees are very high.Same here. I hate their fees, but other than a few attempts to scam me and a couple of LENGTHY waits on customs for international buyers, I've had very good luck. I like to take shots of the lenses with my 180mm macro and post shots I've taken with the lens in my ad. I'm always very detailed about any scratches, marks, etc., no matter how small to make sure the buyer feels comfortable.
