What do you recommend?

I have a 20d
kit lense
50mm f1.8
28-75
75-300 too heavy I am thinking

I'd take it all!!, but that's just me. The 75-300 is actually a lightweight really ;)

I take all of mine as well, but in reality, I borrowed a friend's Tamron 17-35 and 28-75, and the 17-35 rarely left my camera. Wide angle is where it's at for candid shots in Disney. The only time I used my 100-300 was during Fantasmic. If you can get a decent flash before you go, it will come in very handy. Then you can leave the 50 at home.

Don't forget a tripod for the fireworks shows!

I usually just take it all. The 28-75 is good for walking around outdoors. I find the 17-35 good for inside as the 28-75 with the 1.6 factor just doesn't go wide enough. The 70-300 is good for those distant candid and for taking what I'd call the "detail" shots. Disney is very good at the details. Just walk down mainstreet and look at the windows. The long zoom is good for getting the details that are out of reach.

The Animal Kingdom is really big on details. Take a look at the tops of lamp post, the roof eves, and especially the decorations in the wait line setting the mood for the Kali River Rapids. Also, see if you can find the flower pots with the rats scrambling around the outside of it.

I don't have a fifty but that would be good for at night like you say to capture some of the ambiance provided by lighting.


A bunch of stuff.

I'd lie if I say I take all my lenses. LOL

I bought the 24-105 as my "walk around lens", but I really don't like it. Matter afact I don't like it so much that I lend it out to all my friends....

Ok, enough ranting...

If I were to go Disneyland, I would bring my 24-70 + 70-200 + 1.4x teleconverter.

or I might just bring the stupid 24-105....

With my 5D, I would take the 50mm f1.4. With a crop camera though, I think I would take the kit lens.

I'm headed to Disneyland next week. The only thing for me to carry is my Kit Lens. Hopefully I can just make do with that. I'd like to get the 17-85 IS, but then I wouldn't be able to get the tires for my car. I think I use my car more than the camera.

I have taken thousands of photos at Walt Disney World with a 24-85 on a 10D (D30 before that). For long shots (like stage shows and animals) I use a 70-200 f4. The 50 is rarely used, mainly for indoors where the lighting is very low.

I now use a 24-105, it's very sharp and the IS is great in low light.

For versatility, take the 28-75 (or the kit lens) and the 75-300. If you're going to be doing any shows, then you might want to also take the 50 for it's faster aperture.

I'll be there first week of April, actually attending a conference, but I will take 2 extra days so I can have some times taking pictures. I most likely will bring 17-85 and 70-300 DO.

I'm taking my 17-40 L as my only lens. It should be pin sharp in the Florida sun in April when I go.

The only change I'd make is to take the kit lens if you're happy with the quality of your's. You don't need anything else. Stay light. There's lots to see and if you're there to enjoy yourself (not just to take photos) you'll quickly regret taking too much. The 50 will be handy for inside some of the attractions and in the evenings. I had just the 18-55 kit lens and even cranking-up the ISO to the max wasn't always sufficient for inside.
