There's definitely nothing worse than coming upon a grand scene at the very spot your're standing in some place foreign and only having a narrow FoV to work with. With that said, Voigtlander makes a nice 20mm that's small and as a result could always be in your bag without worrying about its footprint.

I agree with your point, except for that you recommended a lens narrower than the one he has (20 vs 17mm)! :)

Doh! Didn't realize that! Then the UWA Zooms would definitely be a nice addition

Wow...
These sure are a lot of replies!
Thank you.

I currently have a Sigma 24-70 DG EX Macro wich I will be selling.
The money I make from the sale, plus some I've saved up I'm going to use to Upgrade my setup.

Besides the sigma, I currently have a 50mm 1.8, a 17-85IS and a Sigma 70-300 Apo.

So, I will be selling the lens with the most optical quality, besides my nifty which I love.
So I'm currently in a loom of uncertainty...
My first though was to buy a good walkaround, likethe 17-55is 2.8. That would almost blow my funds, since I will also buy a Flipside 300 to transport my gear in safety.

Then I started thinking about other options. I'll try to list them:

- Buy a 17-55is 2.8 and take that one.
- Buy a Tamron 17-50 VC 2.8 and a cheap UWA (Used sigma 10-20).
- Buy a good UWA (canon 10-22 or Tokina 11-16) and take it with my 17-85is. The remains save up for a future 24-70L.
- Buy a 24-70L (used but mint) and take it together with the 17-85is.

I know the city is beautiful and I'm looking forward to go! I've been browsing my last trip, which was to London, and I took my 17-85is and took several shots at 17mm.

I also have a 350D body, which I could also take to avoid having to swap lenses often.

Regards and thanks for all the input!

Have you considered the new 15-85?

I thought about it. Buy I think it would be rather similar to my 17-85. And my 17-85 is not easy to sell. And I would be afraid of in the future wanting to go to a fast lens and not be able to sell the 15-85 by a good value.

I don't know how you like to shoot, but whenever I travel, my 17-40 almost never comes off of my 5D, so I would really consider something like the 10-22.

i got a 10-22 specifically for my trip to Europe and found myself using that most of the time.. I also carried a 50mm with me when i felt like taking some candids. I think it went well overall.. but i think for europe in general UWA is very useful.
