I might have the opportunity... no, gonna make the opportunity.. to take a short flight by helicopter over some truly beautiful scenery in the near future. Naturally, I'm doing it for the photo opportunity.
What glass would you bring, and why? I don't want to blow it especially since I get one shot at this. I'll primarily be shooting landscapes. Yes, I know, apart from the glass a great deal rests on my shoulders.
The 17-40 is my usual landscape lens, but I'm aware I might not need an ultrawide since I will be much higher up. I'll bring it anyway, but do you think I would be best served by a 24-105 or something longer? I read one article published by Canon about a professional documentary photog who shoots from the air and usually packs a 70-200 Big White with his EOS 1V (film). I'm using a 5D for full frame digital.
