Just curious of what are some interesting camera/lens combos that people have used there? I try to get there about every other year and I usually go with UW and a prime or 2 and just pick one lens for the day. Some days I'll take just my G15 since it's mostly about fun family pics. But I always like having a DSLR for at least a few of the days.

So what is your favorite Disney lens? What would be something interesting to try.

Well...my favorite all around dslr is my 6D with either the 24-70 f2.8 II or 70-200 f2.8 IS II lens.
But due to its size and weight, not the best setup for a trip to Disneyland, me thinks.

However, if I wanted to stick with my 6D, then I might consider the 24-105 f4 II. That provides a pretty decent FL range.

If I want to stay in the Canon dslr family, but have a compact system, then I would look into the SL2/18-135 combo.

BTW, the last time I visited Disneyland was in 1984. But since no one replied to your post I added my 2 cents. ;-)a

I shot our entire last trip with just my 40mm. Small and light, excellent iq and a useful length for all our family stuff.

I love primes though, I feel it makes me give more thought to composition.

I was really trying to think of something different than the typical lenses used. This past trip I tried using my 135L a bit more but I usually prefer something on the wider end. A fisheye could be interesting there.

Each time we do it, with a smaller setup, we're happier.

I'm happy with:

Fuji X100S (has a 23mm F2 pancake on it). Small. 35mm effective FOV. Light weight. Just awesome for having a great sensor that goes everywhere and isn't a big loud camera (built in ND filter if needed and is dead silent with a leaf shutter, built in flash that can sync at any shutter speed with the leaf shutter for excellent fill flash that doesn't look flashed, all in one camera). Love it.

Otherwise, I like the Fuji X-T1 with a 12mm F2 or a 21mm F1.4. I can tackle any light with them and I love the really wide stuff. With the flip out screen, I can do creative stuff. With wifi, my phone can control it so we can do interesting selfies/family photos, or I can hold it way up high and see on my phone for composition. I often take a little Flashpoint Zoom-Mini TTL flash as it literally fits in a pocket, and handles bounce/fill TTL flash as neede and does HSS. It's just incredible for its size.

Very best,

My next trip I'm going to get a Fuji x100F.
