I'm headed to Phoenix/Sedona in a couple weeks and I have to decide what equipment to bring.. Most of my lenses are manual, which is not a problem for landscapes.

I'm almost thinking a 24-105/6d/b+w polarizer would suffice, but I'm thinking a few closer shots with the 135mm zeiss or even bring the mutar (270mm at f5.6)

Either way, I'm sure I'll get some great shots.... just need to figure out the best vantage points for shooting. (my wife is coming, so that is a disadvantage on time :)

I may just bring all my manual lenses and just leave the nifty fifty at home.
Outdoors, the 24-105 is one hell of a lens.

I was just there in November, I used my 5DmkIII and the 17-40 lens most of the time. I also had my 70-200 f2.8 with but didn't use it much. Great views there. If you've never been there before, stop at the Ranger station on the way in. They have some guides there that will help show you on a map what you can see in the time you have there, I'm glad we did. Its funny timing with your question, I just got about half a dozen large prints for framing yesterday from WHCC that I took when we were there.

If I were you, I would take the 24-105L for day shots and one of your f/1.4 lens for narrow dof/low light shots

Hmm, I may bring my siriu tripod.

Last time I was there I had the Sigma 24-60 2.8 on a 50d.. It was a good combo, but I felt I needed a tiny bit more length.. the 24-105 will give it about 10mm more in zoom.

Every time I go out there, it's on our day off from work. I'm usually with a bunch of guys and I don't get to drive to every spot for the "shot" .. I've only been on the strip and by the church.
This will be really nice.. I hear there is a nice state park near there with a natural water slide... I definitely want to check that out.

I'll check out the ranger station for the map.
