Hi all. Getting ready for my first visit to the Gettysburg PA Battlefield. I have a FF camera, and am a Primeaholic. I have 35L, 85, 135L, 200L and 300L lenses. I would like to take two (2) or three (3) lenses. I do not know how close I can get. For those who have been there before, which ones should I take? Renting or purchasing a zoom is currently out of the question. I rented the 100-400 for another job, and did not like it. thanks in advance. Nick

For some suggestions on "vistas" there is a good photo gallery at https://www.nps.gov …ltimedia/photog​allery.htm (external link). You will find you can get quite close to virtually anything (may require some walking), but for the most part this is a very open area and will need probably the 35 and 85. There are herds of deer in the evening but nothing special so taking/renting a 100-400 isn't necessary. Take some bug stuff because you will be walking through areas and ticks are an issue these days. Make sure the bug stuff doesn't stain and spray liberally on clothing and skin from the knees down.

By the way put the Eisenhower Farm house tour on your agenda. Neat place, see https://www.nps.gov/ei​se/index.htm (external link) for some details.
