If I had a full frame I'd go 24-70L, and if you're worried about the size leave the hood back in the room. Otherwise, I would agree the 24-105L would work well.

Definitely the 24-105. Group shots with IS = :cool:

I'd go with the 24-105 and have a great time.

Although I do admit a 70-200 w/ 1.4x TC could come in handy for parades and other situations where you want to get a bit more background isolation. And an ultra wide would be really handy when shooting close range in crowds.

Disneyworld taught me that carrying a bag with a 10-22, 17-55/2.8 IS, and 70-200/2.8L IS mk I with flash for ten days straight was really dumb. Was too heavy for shoulder at the time.

If you have a fast prime, it might come in handy shooting on rides with high ISO.

These days, I'd still bring all the glass, but, would leave most of it in the hotel room or in a coin locker.

You could also consider a monopod or a table top tripod. The tripod could come in handy shooting fireworks from on top a trash can.

i am going through this now as well. Going to Disney (World) in April and torn about what to bring with me. The 24-70 just seems so heavy to lug around.

I bought a G12 but am afraid to rely on it alone. I own a Tammy 28-75 for a light option so I guess I could bring that. Thought about buying a 24-105 for the trip and then selling it when I returned.

Last time I was there I had a better time when I just had the camera around my shoulder with just a small lens. All though you could always take more than one lens and lock it up if the need arises. Also with the OPs camera cropping would also stretch you pretty far I'd imagine with a 17-50.

I had a season pass last year and went around 6 times. Never took my 24-70 due to weight and size but had great results with 16-35II or 35L. I'm sure 24-105 will do just fine.

Curious to know, this thread is on full frame but on your flickr page you stated you used a 20D on the castle photo. If that came from a 20D with the 50mm 1.4 then I have to agree with you to never doubt the nifty 50.

Sorry, I was just trying to prove the 50 is good enough to take on a trip. Yeah, it was a 20D and sigma 50mm.
