Anybody visited Barcelona, Spain lately?
I am travelling there in ten days and thought I'd pack my 40D + 28mm f/1.8 + 80mm f/1.8 + Sigma 10-20 f/4-5.6 EX.
Well, http://photo.net/spain/barcelona warns that the city reeks of thieves and concludes: "...don't carry extra lenses. One camera. One lens. In your hands at all times".
I have also heard a TV crew complain about having their equipment stolen while filming in Barcelona.
Second opinion anybody? Is it really that bad? Worse than most big cities in Europe? Should I take it seriously and think along the lines of a single zoom with more reach, like my 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC macro (non-OS)?
(I know, I know! It was between the upgrade and paying for my trip to Barcelona ).
