Like many others have suggested, go wide angle (10-22 or equivalent) for landscape shots. Would be great to have a view of the skyline from Ellis Island. Use the EF-S 17-55 for your walk around lens. On a crop body, the 17-55 holds it's own compared to some L lenses. And I would also suggest a prime lens for the still shots. Have fun and stay safe.

Thanks all for great suggestions. One last question......If you could go to only one photo store in NYC,which would it be? B&H,or Adorama?


well...............I prefer going to Adorama....to buy

with that said........B&H is like taking a pilgrimage to Jersaluem for a photographer. Adorama could probably fit in the cash register section of B&H.

if you can only go to one...experience B&H it's HUGE

Eli has helped me every time....well I click on his name. He helped my the very first time I went in and have returned to his counter each visit.

I will formally amend my statement and suggest OP get to both places even in the face of the question "if I could only go to one".

I still think B&H is like a pilgrimage for photographers.
It's like a kid and parent going to Toys-R-Us in Times Sq. It's an experience.
Albeit to buy I'd prefer to go down the block a little to 18th street between 5th and 6th.

Hard to compare both places.
Adorama's service is exceptional and you feel special whilst there.
Feels like a very profession place with great concern for the visiting consumer.
B&H is like a Mecca for tourists and enthusiasts alike. It's an experience.
Too by the same token for others not from NY they don't have all the same choices....Adorama is a Mecca unto itself.

2OP: You really don't need to rent any lenses, I did a trip to NYC with Tamron 17-50 non-VC and it was a perfect range. Since you're going to be shooting buildings, in low light the IS on your lens will make up for slower aperture. Would 10-22 be better ? Perhaps, for some shots, but too short for others. I doubt that it would make much difference, but YMMV.

I just got back from my NYC trip like an hour ago! I took my 10-22 17-55 and 70-200 and my 17-55 was on my 7d 95% of the time. I must say, I did use my 10-22 a fair bit, however, I found that using the 17-55 at around the 28-35mm mark and doing a panoramic shot worked better most of the time than doing a 10mm shot. Of course, that is only my opinion.
