Currently own a 24-70, thinking of adding either a 70-200mk 2 or a 8-15 fisheye, undecided on what to get any comments opinions?

Agreed. My travel bag consists of an SX260HS and my right front pocket. I go on vacation to relax. Whoodathunkit?

I'd go with a 70-200. If you're shooting outdoors, f4 should be enuf. IS or not, depending on you preference and your wallet. <g>

Between the fisheye and the telephoto, I'd definitely go long! I'm 90% sure you won't regret it, and if you do, sell it and get most of your money back (maybe the same is true for the fisheye, I'm not sure about resale on those).

Why buy a lens for a trip? Rent one. Or 2.
