My stepdaughter works there.
I have my 5d3 and really only want to bring one lens in.
Choices are.....
24-105
17-40
70-200 2.8 II

What do you think?

Thanks

I'd put it between the 17-40 and 24-105. I love the 17-40 as a walk around lens, but the 24-105 should be really versatile; on FF, I'd say 24-105.


I wonder if the video editors on The Titanic ever went, "Sorry, I can't right now. I'm busy synching the Titanic..."

I have that one in mind.
Don't think I need anything wider but the 70-200 is clean and sharp I was debating tween the two.

I just went a couple of times this year (year pass for fl residents) and most of my pictures were with the 17-55, you don't really need longer unless you want real close ups of some of the animals, and most will be through a glass anyways. So my vote is for your 24-105 (if you only want to take one) or also add the 17-40 for more versatility. I would take the flash anyways, because you will need it to balance the ligtht and/or for fill. Its far more important to select good seating for the shows. My two cents.

For the shows your 70-200 won't get wide enough to get the whole scene. But it will be ideal for the exhbits. The 24-105 would probably be the best "compromise".

I would think sitting in the stands for the shows the 70-200 would be better.

However for general walk around the 24-105

Since you've probably been to Seaworld and back by now, I hope if you went to the whale show you stayed well back from the front rows. Watched in shock a number of years ago a great number of people get well drenched, and felt particularly sorry for an avid photog with what looked like some pretty serious gear get thoroughly soaked - look on his face said it all.

I was to seaworld once, when I was too little to remember it. However, on the video dad shot (VHS, of course :lol:), they warned all photographers to move away from the edge of the tank.

I did see the show and Yes, the front rows got more than drenched.
Had no desire to clean my camera and lens that way.

I have a year round pass (I have a 2 & 4 year old) so w/the 5d the 24-105mm would serve you well. Post some photo's for all when you can.
