Normally, I might suggest the 70-200 just for versatility... But since you have young kids, I doubt they'll get too far away from you when you're in the park, right? So, another vote for the 30mm if you really just want to take one lens.

i vote for the 17-40L.

sometimes, you want a WideAngle to capture the park.

17-40L is not in their signature.

A vote for 30mm from me. It's the widest lens you have, plus it's really fast.

The 30mm is the one that makes the most sense as a walkaround, but I also like to have something longer to take portraits of my son on the rides. I'd take both 30 and 70-200. Let your wife take care of the kids and pretend you are in charge of the photos :)

I've taken the 24-70 to Disneyworld multiple times and the 70 end wasn't long enough for some shots, i.e., castle show, fireworks display. From the primes in your signature, I'd suggest you take two depending on what you intend to do in the parks with the children. The 35 or 50 and the 85. Just remember to hand the camera to one of the Disney photographers so that they can take some photos with you in it.

If you're going to restrict yourself to a single prime lens, and juggle kids, how about a point and shoot instead?

+1

After lugging around the "brick" for awhile, I've gone back to just the 30/1.4 (with the 85 in the bag just in case) for "family stuff"

I'll still use the 24-70L for my paid stuff though.

Have a P&S available as well. Wife has powershot 1000.

Would love to pick up a 17-40, but my wife still isn't excited about the money spent on the 70-200 yet.

I would toss the 30/85 in a Slingshot 200AW along with the Xsi and call it a day.

The P&S would be good for some "wider" shots (I'm assuming the P&S is wider than your 30, that's why I tend to keep my S90 on the ready, as it's equivalent to ~17mm on my DSLRs)

In that case, take the 70-200 and show her the great shots you're getting and also the ones you're missing because you don't have the 17-40. Two birds with one stone.

I'm gonna make an awesome husband one day. ;)
