Looking for some last minute advice before a trip to Havasupai in a couple weeks. I'm trying to narrow down my kit so I don't have to carry anything on the hike if I'm not going to use it. Currently the only thing I'm certain I'll carry is a FF body with Sigma 20mm Art, for astro stuff over the falls. Then will probably take my Olympus E-M5 or Panasonic GM1 with kit lens, maybe the 45 f1.8 for some people shots.

For those who've visited Havasu Falls, how wide was your widest lens and did you find it wide enough? Did you ever want anything long? I "see" mostly moderately wide (35mm is my favorite FL) but I enjoy shooting across the spectrum, and would hate to feel like equipment limited my chances of getting any shots on a once-in-a-lifetime type of trip. Would love to hear from anyone who's been there. Thanks!

Not a comment based on recent experience butI once hiked from the river to the falls and only took a 28-105 which worked fine. I purposely reduced my photo gear to make room for a 6-pack. :)

:lol: Between the gear and the beer, I'm not sure I'll have room for much else.

Bring a tripod and your widest lenses you have when I was there I used a 17-40 and 24-70 for most of my photo's

Thanks. Sometimes I find UWA too wide for landscape work but perhaps I'll pick up a Rokinon 14mm before I go.

OP, how was your trip there? Did you bring other lens beside the 20A as mentioned? I'm planning a trip in 2018 and would love to hear the experiences.
TIA.
