Hi,
I am planning to go to Galveston, TX and I would like to get some advice which lens to carry around. I have T4i, 18-55mm, 55-250mm, 50mm 1.8, 40mm2.8 , 85mm1.8 and 430exii.
If my plan is confirmed, I would visit places with family like the beach, moody mansion, Tall Ship Elissa, Moody garden, Bishop Palace etc.

Thanks :):D:lol:


T4i, 18-55mm,55-250mm ii & 50m 1.8, 40mm 2.8 & the latest collection 85mm 1.8

Can you rent a 10-22? If not, take the 18-55. That and a normal-short telephoto (55-250?) would be in my bag.

If it were me I'd bring the 18-55 and the 40mm pancake since it fits in a pocket easily. On camera flash is fine for most stuff since you've got that option (and I miss it more than I realized I would switching to FF). If you have a bag, I'd also throw in the 55-250.

what are you planning on taking pictures of? if nothing in particular, 18-55, 55-250 and 50 1.8 will cover just about everything.

UV filters can be handy at the beach, that's pretty much the only time I use mine, they help protect the front element from sea-spray. The polarizer however, I would definitely bring if you're going to be shooting water, sky and in museums. I try to always use my lens hoods, so I'd definitely bring that/those. Since you have a small bag I'd bring the two zooms and the 50/1.8 if you can fit them. If not, substitute the 50 for the pancake.

Simplify your gear : sell your 18-55, 55-250, 50 1.8 ;)
Buy a 10-22 or 12-24 and you would have a fantastic combo! 10-22 + 40mm + 85mm
