Off to the world In a few weeks for Star Wars Weekends. I've rented a 70-200 2.8 IS for several reasons, to try the lens out, and to ensure that if I need the reach, I have it. I am pretty sure we will not be back for SWW weekend for at least a few years and do not want to miss any opportunities. We will not be going to Animal kingdom this trip which I know this lens is ideal for. Anyone have any examples with this lens? This special event? Shooting ideas?

For the record I'm shooting with a 50D and will also bring my 11-16 and 18-135.

Was there for very first day of SWW last year but didn't arrive until late morning, which was a big mistake. Be as early as you can to get in.

I have a 5D II and an EOS 3 film camera. My 24-105mm stayed glued to the 5D II and my Voigtlander 40mm stayed on the EOS 3 the entire time. My Sigma 70-200mm never left the hotel room and I didn't miss it. I'm sure I could have used it and shot differently. But the wide to telephoto range of the 24-105mm fit my needs perfectly. So I would think your 18-135mm would most likely see the most action.

We've been several times to both Orlando and Anaheim, and not going to lie, it's been very rare that I've really needed a telephoto lens. The parks are usually so crowded that you don't really have the room to use one. Granted, I've seen some really awesome photos that people have posted here using a telephoto lens, but it seems you'd really have to seek out a vantage point (and disengage from the experience) where one would be useful.

If you're trying to shoot while enjoying the parks, you'll more often find yourself shooting on wider apertures, than long ones. I shot the majority of my shots on my last trip in the range of 24-50mm. I brought an 85mm prime, and the one time I used it, couldn't fit the subject entirely in the frame. Telephoto lenses would be most useful for shows and animal kingdom, IMO.

11-16 would work good, capture more then you can crop. Bring a 1.4 lens for night shots like the 35L.

Thanks. We willl be arriving each day early for sure. It's gonna be hard to contain my son..OK, who am I kidding...myself as well! My 18-135 does usually stay on most of the time as it is the "right" range for me. I will carry the 70-200 just because know I will use it regardless, as the main reason for renting it is to try it out. Maybe just not as much as my 18-135.

Thanks. We have been MANY times as well and a little disengaging from the experience to take photos would be fine in my book. Im actually looking forward to it. I do expect the 70-200 to come in handy for the shows as I am not planning to fight the crowds or wait any real length of time to be upfront at any of the shows.

Thanks. 11-16 is definitely one of my favorites for Disney. My daughter wil be carrying the nifty fifty so I'll have that for low light situations. The 50 is my fastest lens.

We visited Disney in 2012 for the first time. Even at my age it was indeed a magical experience.

I don't think it matters, so long as the shots are from Disney. :cool:
