Lots of good advice here. Each makes good sense but now I'm even more confused over what to take!
Sounds like I need the 16-35, 24-105, 35L, 85L, and 135L. Thankfully no one recommended the 120-300!
I lived in new york city and travel there time to time.
I vote 24-105 as first lens. 35L as second lens, 16-35 as third lens. If you are travelling with family, always bring a normal to wide fast prime for hotel shots, low light sots, and nice environmental portraits. the 24-105 is a good bread and butter lens, and one of the main reasons I moved to full frame. Its nice to be able to go extra wide, and also 16-35 would make your best video lens.
Thanks for the suggestions. I'm now looking at small bags like the Kata 214 sling so I can comfortably take a few lenses.
wem wrote in post #9175665In NYC, 75% of my keeper shots (and that is what it's all about) were taken with the 85L.
20% with the 17-40. And the rest got split up between the 24LII and the 70-200 F4 IS. So my vote would be 16-35 and 85L.
After my limited time with it I can see this happening too. My only concern is that it is actually heavier than the brick. The 85 1.8 can fit in a coat pocket and weighs nearly nothing in comparison.
