I will be in St. Louis this week, the zoo and Grants Farm, and a few other places as well as downtown. I have the 55-250 IS, 18-55 IS and the 50 1.8


I plan on using the 55-250 IS at the zoo and Grants Farm, but what about downtown, city museum etc?


My 550 EX Speedlite is for sale, pm me!

With those lenses the logical next option would be an ultra wide angle to cover the scenery side of things

Depending on your needs I'd say for budget Sigma 10-20, versatility Canon 10-22, and ultimate performance Tokina 11-16.

It seems you have it covered with your two zoooms. You'll be doing alot of walking from the sites you plan to visit so I'd avoid lugging too much gear around.

You're going to want to shoot the Arch, so keep the wider lens handy. If you go up into the Arch, that wide angle lens will be great for shots of the city from above.

When shooting from the park around the Arch, its a challenge to the get the entire arch in at 17mm on a crop camera. Take your widest lens.
