Ok, sorry for another "which lens" thread, but I could use some inspiration. I'm heading to the Nepal Himilaya treking later this year. I'll be getting right up "in" the mountains and carrying most of my stuff myself so need to limit lenses. I'll be taking the 5D2 and 24-105L and 70-300L for general people and compressed landscapes.
I want to take something wide for landscape shots when I'm up in the deep valleys near the peaks. I have three to choose one to take from, but can't make up my mind and would welcome the thoughts of others.
- 16-35L mk2 - fast (2.8) weather-sealed and versatile with AF and can use CPL, but not the sharpest
- 24TS-E mk2 - infinite DOF control, well sealed, can do shift-panos as wide at 15mm equiv, can use CPL and uber-sharp, but slow and fiddly to use and manual AF
- 14mm Samyang - fast (2.8) super sharp and ultra wide, but can't use CPL and no AF and no weather sealing. Probably has the advantage that if damage it or it get's stolen it's not such a big deal compared to the above.
