I have a business trip scheduled for May 6 - May 12 in Singapore. I have never travelled to Singapore - or really outside the US except for a London trip last summer (Canada and Jamaica don't count). Of course, I plan to take a camera as I will have some down time for sightseeing, shopping, etc. Since it is a business trip I don't want to drag around a bunch of camera gear. I plan on taking my 20D and one lens.
I recently sold my zoom lenses (except the kit) and bought a 28/50/85 combo. I have been challenging myself by taking just one prime with me (usually the 28 1.8) and exercising more thought and creativity to photograph from the perspective of the lens. The 50 has been used mainly for portrait shots of my kids and the 85 is for kid sports/activities.
I could buy a 17-50ish zoom as I will probably eventually replace the kit with one anyway - but that would be a slap in the face to my self-imposed lens limitations
I am curious on your thoughts on the following options:
1) take the 20D and 28 1.8 ("normal" lens on a crop) - hey that's all a lot of people had "back in the day" and some fine photos were taken!
2) go ahead and dump the kit and buy a Tamron 17-50 to take
