I'm going to Disney World for 6 days. I don't have much lenses, so I don't really want to take the 70-200L IS II. The nifty doesn't feel up to par.

What focal length or should I say, what lense should I purchase to take along. I wanted to buy the 24-70L II, but don't know when it'll be released. I'm going in the middle of July, so I do have some more decision time.

What's a good focal length for Disney with the 5D3? Or should I just take the Canon S100 due to, I'll be riding the rides..

Something wide. 17-40 or 16-35.

well since youre in the US you can prolly rent the 16-35 for 6 days so you dont need to put down a hunk o cash and then realize you dont like shooting wide....but in disney though youd want to shoot wide probably more often than not to get environmental portraits.

I always bring the 24-70 ver 1 along...but I go a lot. But its wide enough and long enough for general photos for my purposes.

Bring the S100 and enjoy the experience and the rides with your family with the camera safely in your pocket, rather than worrying about the camera on the wild and wet rides!

You can probably get a closer picture of your family on the rides with the 70-200. But that forces you to not ride with them though.

I'm going in June..... I'm wanting a light setup, probably just my 10-20 and 18-55 for magic kingdom and epcot, then probably 18-55 and 55-250 for animal kingdom. I love my sigma 30mm, but I just don't see taking a lot of shots with thin DOF or having to foot zoom in crowds. I also have a little waterproof olympus that will be my pool and/or rainy day camera.

I might be able to get a 15-85 or a 17-50 OS before then.... If I get the 15-85, it might be the only lens I take.


T3i, Sigma 10-20, Sigma 30 1.4, 18-55 kit, 55-250, YN-565, a few books, some software, and a desire to get good.....

A 17-40mm would be a good all-around one solution lens but if you have kids an s100 would be easier. I took the family to D-Land in LA and lugged a 1D/28-80 2.8 which worked well and just dropped in the stroller while walking. I also carried a plastic bag to use as a makeshift water protector which actually came in handy a few times.

24-70 is probably one of the best all around lens. That's what I would take. IMO

I went to Tokyo Disney Land and got away with using a 30mm on a crop which would be a 48mm FOV on FF. I guess you could say I didn't capture as much of the place itself as some people would like.

If you're interested:

I agree, you need to get wide lens. Two years ago, I went to Disney with xsi and 28-135. It was not wide enough certain shots. Also, I am curious on how many people bring their 1d to disney or other attraction parks.

This. I brought my G5 (yes it was an eternity ago when I went) and couldn't have been happier.

We went to Disney World for 10 days in early April this year. I had taken my new 5D3 with the 24-105, 70-200 F4 IS and the nifty fifty. For the most part I got the shots I needed with the 24-105 but missed on some shots not having a wider lens. I used the 70-200 & 24-105 for Animal Kingdom. I struggled with the nifty fifty on the indoor shots, Carrying a DSLR & bag around in the heat and crowds wore me down so you have to ask yourself is it more important for you to get some decent shots with a P&S and enjoy your visit or are you more interested in shooting everything under the sun? I missed out on a lot of fun cause I was worried about missing good photo opportunities than just enjoying my vacation.
