Have a trip coming up to YellowStone and the Tetons. Wondering what lenses people had brought or wish they had brought. I have a 5d, and I am thinking about taking my trusty 24-105 and 100-400 along. Any suggestions?

Good pair of lenses, those are the two I used the most, along with a 70-200 I carried when walking sometimes instead of the 100-400. I've done two trips to Yellowstone, about ten days total.
I did not find a need for anything wider than 24 after I got my FF; before that I had something wider than that along ...

Having made three trips out there, I agree with those recommendations as far as glass, although I'm making the assumption your are doing full frame. If cropped you might need to go "wider". Make sure you take a polarizer.

Check your PM.

I would take one fast lens as well. The Old Faithful Inn is very photographic.

Mormon Row at sunrise in GTNP is spectacular. That area is so blessed with world class photo ops.

Definitely take a polarizer, lots of water in Yellowstone!

Positively! But go to Schwabacher Landing first (see what I sent you earlier), and about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes prior to sunrise. The vantage point, which can be very busy, is facing west, toward the Tetons. Usually the river is very still in the early AM so reflections are quite nice. As the sun comes up behind you it brightens the peak of the Teton and then works its way down the flanks of the mountain. Absolutely stunning, tripod essential, do a +/- 1 stop bracket just to be sure.

Once the Tetons are in full sun then hear to Mormon Row which is just a short distance away. Catch the old homes with the Tetons in the background. Be careful, bison are commonly in the area in early morning. When I was last there I was shooting a herd of about 6 from perhaps 100 feet but didn't notice that the bull was no longer with his lady friends. As I put my camera down and got ready to start the car I took one last look; well the bull was about 8 to 10 feet away from the car glaring at me! I fired off a few images (see attached) and then just sat and he finally left.

I shoot in those areas often, and am familiar with the shooting conditions and the types of photo opportunities that most commonly present themselves. For wildlife in the Tetons and Yellowstone, the big supertelephotos are, by far, the most useful lenses. Take the longest lens you can afford to rent. Even if you had an 800mm f5.6, you would often wish you had more reach.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
