In about a week and half I am going to the Grand Canyon along with my Canon 50D.

Here are the current lens I am taking:

24-105L f/4
100 f/2.8
70-200L f/4 IS
Sigma 10-20mm

I was thinking of renting a 17-55 EF-S to use as my general walking around lens and use the above lens when needed. Do you think its a good idea? Is the 17-55 even needed with my lens lineup? I am debating since I do have a wide lens sigma 10-20.

Thanks for your input, Scott.

Yeah, people walk out on the edge and do not realize the surface they are standing on is cut back beneath them.

You think you are standing on 50 feet of solid rock when you are really standing on 3 feet of the crumbling stuff.

People die here falling from the edge. Do not go beyond-or climb on-walls or railings. Most who die have gone beyond walls or rails.

Ha.

I think you are covered with what you have, but if you feel you need it you might as well. Better to have too much than not enough.

I think thats a good setup. I did Moab with 17-40 on 30d. There is no need for a f/2.8 lens out there, a good tripod is all you need. :)


:D My goodies
