Is 35mm wide enough for Europe?

If d'Orsay has begun prohibiting photography, that' s terrible. In 2007 it was completely open to shooting inside.

Yeah, certainly since 2010. Its a real shame. I'm not that interested in shooting the artworks but the old railway station itself is beautiful and I'd love to be able to photograph it.

Shame, but I have many good shots in my files from 2007, so c'est la vie. My favorite was not from the inside, but from the upper level roofline.

Assuming you are happy to ignore all the "No Photography" signs that are inside.

Assuming you know what you are talking about. I am talking about the outside clock that you can shoot only from the museum cafeteria, and it is a fun photo to shoot. There is no restriction in there.

I know what I'm talking about thank you. The photography ban is for the whole of the building interior.

I lived in Germany for 5+ years as a member of the US Army. If I were taking a FF camera and one lens to Europe, that lens would be my 17-40. If I were taking two lenses, I'd add the Rok 14. Stick to the tourist traps of London, Paris, Madrid, and such and you'll be fine with a 24-105. If the point is to bring back some unique views of interesting subjects, take something wider.


Yep, that's what I think too

Yes it can, from Ile Saint-Louis or across the river. Easy. But.. you're assuming that the photographer will want to take images of the whole of Notre Dame. I spend a lot of time in Paris, with a camera, and feel no such compulsion! It's an amazing building for sure, but why take a picture of it, that's identical to 10,000 other pictures on the internet? What's the point?

Why? Because we are there. Traveling around the world is great for capturing great images and documenting your personal trip.
In Paris last summer and hit all the usual stops. But the images I captured are not the usual you see on the Internet. They are creative, artistic and personal. And yes some even just a snapshot..just a moment in time.

Nothing to do with the fact that I'm from Scotland too, but I agree with you and have to say I find this the most bizarre thread. The title makes me laugh every time I read it. It's like asking, "How long is a piece of string?", in my view. It all depends....

How long?.........this much.

I admit, Traveling light in Camera gear is not something I am known for.
Last summer for a trip to Paris and Dublin packed in a ThinkTank StreetWalker Hard Drive.
5D Mark III, gripped with 70-200 f/2.8 L IS Mark II attached, 7D gripped body, 17-40 F/4 L, 24-105 f/4 L IS, TS-E 24 L II, Canon 600 EX-RT, ST-E3, Camera batteries and charger and additional AA batts.
And of course plenty of CF and SD cards.
I also bring a Lowepro Pro Messanger 180 as a personal item which I use if I want to break my kit down during the day.
A MeFOTO Globetrotter CF tripod was also purchased for this trip to meet weight restrictions.
Everything I brought was utilized as I wanted to be able to bring home what I envisioned.
What I really need is a "Roadie"!!!
For me, is 35 Wide enough? Probably not.
I guess if the plane is ready but can only take one lens...............

My apologies. Whether I was right or wrong I should not have used that tone and that language.

We could get scientific here and say something like: "with your 35mm lens, you'd need to be X yards away in order to fit the (insert famous landmark) in frame. Due to the confines of the surrounding streets you'll only be able to get Y feet away. Therefore, buy at least a 24mm lens". If you had that, would it affect which lens you bought? Or would you trust your instincts and go with what you already own and know? If you are a 35mm shooter, it's because it fits your style and vision, right? I don't think I'd change that just to get a few snaps of a random building...

At the same time though, if you are like me and everyone else on this gear forum, buying a new lens for a trip to Europe (or any trip outside of your home town/city/state/countr​y) is a most enjoyable experience :) It's fun knowing that you'll get to use a new piece of gear, but it's also agonizing when you have to choose which one!

Historically I would take a 24L & 50L, both great lenses & perfect for most shots, however, since I purchased the 24-70L II that's my default walk around lens in Europe.

My one trip to Europe (Italy) I took my 24L and 50L. Aside from constantly switching between them, I had a great time and captured some amazing 'scapes with those two lenses. They were with me on the ancient streets of Rome, in the medieval confines of Florence, along the picturesque Amalfi Coast... it was like sharing an unforgettable journey with two close friends :)

Of course there were times when I wanted wider than 24mm (especially in Rome), or some telephoto capability greater than 50mm to shoot details from far off (Tuscany), but I was more than happy with those two lenses.

Have been to all countries listed and i have to say i came along very good with just a 16-35 and 40/50mm lens

24mm is wide, but at times I wanted a bit wider, so: 16-35 f/4 and 50L is now my lineup for travels as well.
