I can't see how taking a 24mm-xx lens is the way to go on APS-C at Dland. Widest FOV being almost 40mm? I don't think so.

I'd say snag a 15-85 IS, or get yourself a nice P&S like the S95 and call it a day.

Enjoy the lines! :lol:

For Disney, my favourite is clearly 17-40 on a 5Dmk2. So the equivalent would be 10-22 for your aps-c.

Why ultra wide ? Just because you can shot & take videos when you're inside the action ! Moreover, buildings are wide to shoot.

f4 and high ISO seems right for me.

I also recommend the 15-85. A very versatile lens on a crop body, wide enough for "most" shots yet enough zoom to get interesting shots across the lakes/ponds. Also depends on whether you are going to Epcot or Animal Kingdom, as mentioned.

IMHO, YMMV,

Am I the only one to say this? Don't rent anything, buy a used 18-55IS for $100 and have something you can use the next week.

I have done Disney once with the 18-55 and the next time with the 24-105. You can get by with either, but I would want a lens to use the rest of the time.

I don't get the rental thing for consumer/ semi pro lenses in that price range. It is one thing renting an expensive super tele prime like a 600/4 for Yellowstone or a specialized lens like a TSE17 if you are a pro and have a paid assignment you expect to return money on the rental, but not lenses in the ~ $1000 range.

A while ago I saw a gallery from someone here on POTN that used their 85mm f1.8 on their 1D for a good portion of the pictures. They said they would even consider using a 135mm the next time around. They did use a 17-40mm for some wide shots, but most were from the 85mm.

It has me thinking that when we go next year, I may get the 28mm f1.8 too and try a light-weight, two lens solution for Disney and Epcot. I'd probably take the 28mm and my 70-200 into Animal Kingdom.

I disagree with those that suggest just take a point-n-shoot as the main/only camera. As my wife reminded me once before a trip to the beach (that we've been to many times), I have the DSLR so we can capture moments with the best quality we can afford and can get shots that would not be possible with a point-n-shoot. If you have some idea of what limited gear you will carry on a given day, you can travel light but still have some flexibility. I recently picked up the Panasonic TS-3 point-n-shoot because it's one of those water proof/shock proof cameras. That way I can leave the DSLR safe and dry while doing the water parks.

17-55 f/2.8. Been to Disney world many times. The parks really come alive at night. You will want the extra stops.

But if I had to do with those choices...24-105. IS and it is lighter. You will appreciate that fact when you're hauling it around every day.

I agree, I took the family to Disneyland last christmas and I rented the Canon 17-55 2.8. It was perfect for Disneyland. Infact, I never took it off my camera. I took a longer range lens but never used it. The 2.8 worked great at night too.

But then again, you didn't list this lens... so.....

If I were to go back, I would take my Tamron 17-50mm with my Black Rapid strap. The f/2.8 is helpful for the indoor shows and the Tamron is sharp and one of the lightest f/2.8 zooms around. The BR strap makes the camera very easy to carry all day.

so far im thinking this.... 24-105 as a purchase, so after the trip it would serve as a more general full purpose use IMO than the 17-55 2.8 IS, i just feel the 17-55 will stick me to a wide only range... where the 24-105 has more coverage, regardless of low light ability on either lens, if its dark... its dark...

my thinking is the 24-105 and picking up a cheap 30mm so i can pull either that or the 50 from the bag at night time to handle lower light, yet during the day, have the versatility and more broad range of the 24-105....

thoughts?

I have the 24-105mm and 24 is not very wide on a crop frame camera. Wider tends to be better at Disney.

24-105 and a fast prime sound like a good two-lens solution. I second the vote above for the Black Rapid strap. I've done local amusement parks exclusively with the 85mm to see how that works, and it works better than you might think.

I just feel I'd get more general use with a 24-105 & primes instead of a constricted 17-55 (great it may be, but too short) for general use following the trip

Last time we went to Disney I brought my 24-70, 85mm, and 70-200 IS F4. Ended up using the 24-70 90% of the time. Took 2300 pictures....took a week to get through them all after getting home. :-)
