Hey guys, I'm going on a European family cruise at the end of the summer. I'd like a 2 lens solution for my 5DII and was thinking of picking up a 24-70 and 50mm 1.4 Sigma. Key photography points are The Acropolis, The Amalfi Coast and Positano, Sicily and the various sights around Rome. I know 24mm isn't quite wide enough for the Colosseum but its enough for me. I'd like the 50mm for on board the ship family photos and for low light stuff inside St Peter's and the like.

Anyone use something similar as a travel setup? Based on my destinations I don't think I'll need longer or wider. I've read the Europe "recomendation" threads and this seems like a good fit. I'm also looking into getting a CPL for the landscape shots that are, unfortunately, going to have to be taken in midday sun.

Cheers

I wouldn't bother with a 50 if I was taking the 24-70. If I'm gonna carry two lenses I'm not gonna duplicate range. I get that they can be used differently but not differently enough for me for travel purposes. I carry 11-16, 24-70 and 70-200 for travel, thus, my advice to you is getting something longer for detail shots, or, more practically based on your destinations, get something a bit wider for the tight spaces you're going to be in.

ions - wow!! Incredible captures... I reckon bw!

Congrats! Would love to get some captures like these some day... Going back down to Cape Town (my home town) next week, work, but still, with some luck enough time to use my new equipment in a slightly more scenic place than I'm currently stuck in (Jo'burg!)

Cheers,

Dirk
