I havent been to india (I would love to go though :) ) however I spend alot of time in china
and the 2 countries have similar population densities. In china I quite often found even 50mm on full frame too long. the 16-35 f2.8L II is my most used lens in these crowded places. With heavily crowded areas there simply isnt the working room to bring a 70-200 to bear.

Too true!  My walkaround lens was a Sigma 17-70 - mainly set to 17.

This might be the place for the shorty forty as even on a 1 series the camera doesn't look that impressive

I think these sorts of places are what the shorty forty was made for. probably the perfect lens for this situation even still perhaps could be too tight sometimes on Full frame definately too tight on a crop

Agreed, but as you say might be too tight...  now if they came out with a tiny twenty, i would be all over that!  :) Generally my 10-22 or 17-55 lives on my camera on day to day basis.

Hey,

Arrived in India and thought i would let you all know i ended up with the 70-200..  in fact my Wife surprised me with it as a late wedding gift...  :D

Bought it in India from a Canon store for 2014 Euro...  so cheaper than in France! :)

thanks for all the advice!

Really? Wow! Some lenses just went up in price in India by about 33% some 10 or so days back! I think it was due to changes in exchange rates. I am sure you will enjoy it.
Have fun! Do go to the Mysore palace if you like palaces...
