I am taking my new G15 but I just decided to take along a DSLR as well so I am considering

1. 5d2 + 24L II and 24-105 or 17/40

2.5d2 + 24L II/50L

3. 60D + 24L II and 17-40

I also have the pancake that I will take regardless.

Any thoughts, I have never been so not sure what would be most useful. I want to keep it to a minimal amount of gear.

Sounds like a ton of gear. What is your primary reason for going? What are you hoping to photograph? Why not just the 60D with the 24-105 and a flash?


I'm in Canada. Isn't that weird!

Going for fun with family ( 2 kids 2 and 6 so I don't want to lug much ). I honestly plan to use the G15 90% of the time but I know once I get there I will regret it if I have no DSLR so at minimal I will take my 5d2 and pancake. What ever I take I will only take the body with 1 lens attached so no camera bag. I do have a 270 flash I will keep in a pocket.

In some ways I feel the 24-105 will really not benefit much over the G15 so a prime seems like a better choice.

any thoughts? I thought the 24L might be fun since I want to get the environment in most shots. I may end up not even using it but I hate going somewhere and regretting it.

5DII+24-105+50L. The 24-105 will cover everything during the day and the 50L will work for the dark rides and night activities/parades.

Wide for Disney...

I would say minimally, the 5D2+17-40 be perfect for almost everything there (for any park besides animal kingdom).

I don't see the need for the 24L if you are taking the pancake anyway for slightly faster aperture.

I would vote 40 and 17-40 myself.

Well it's 2 stops and it is much wider. My plan was to take just my 60D and 24L but I have heard wider is better for disney that is why I am leaning toward the 5d2 now.

Which is why I said take the 17-40 for your wide stuff. Not sure of the point of the pancake besides it's small size... I would rather take a 24L, although not much at Disney requires lenses that fast unless there at night. If so, take it!

But honestly, ideally the 17-40 and 24L would be perfect. Leaving the pancake and whatever else at the house/hotel.

It depends what you want to do. Are you going on every ride with them, or will you be shooting them from outside? If you plan on shooting from inside the rides, the 5d2 and 24L would be good. I had a tough time with f/2.8, and flash isn't allowed, so I'd bring a fast lens. From your choices, I like the 5D2, 24L, and 24-105.

I think I will do the 17-40 and 24 with my 270 flash. Yes it overlaps but I will only be taking 1 lens when I am out and about. I have a luma strap which should really help.

thanks.

If you're going to do most of your shooting with the G, I'd take the 5D2 and the 50L...that way you have a bokeh monster setup for pictures you're going to frame, and the G for everything else.

Either this, or the G for most shooting and then the 60D + pancake for portraits. I don't have the 40mm pancake but if the IQ is as good as they say, the smaller size of both the 60D and 40mm over the 5DII and 50L would probably be worth it.

Weight-wise, the 5DII + 50L weighs on almost 20 oz more than the 60D + 40 pancake, something else to consider.

I came back from Disney world this year and I had my 5d3 with 50mm and I wished I had a wider lens. Take something wider than 50mm.
