Go with your 30. I was there last week and took the majority of my pics with my 18-55. More often than not closer to 18 than 55...

I am heading to Disneyworld and really an only wanting take one lens with me. Pretty sure my two 1 and 3yr old will take up most my time lol!

Which of my lens would you guys recommend I take?

why only one lens, take a small one and a big one as a carry on. the 30mm is small, take that and then the 70-200 because you may want zoom, look, if you only take one you will wish you took the other one. bring 2.

I would take the 50mm or the 85mm + the 70-200. Leaning towards 50mm.

I am heading to Disneyland in June and think the 70-200 will be very useful for shot of children on rides. I am the photog and "pack mule" for family trips.

rent at 24-105. Between that and the 17-40, I had what i needed for most shots when I was there a year ago.

LOL. A 70-200 at Disney World? You're going to start hating life about half-way through your day.

18-55 IS, 55-250 IS and be DONE with it. Both of those lenses will fit the pocket of your cargo shorts (or your wife's fanny-pack) when not in use.

To be honest, a G11 should be plenty of camera at Disney world/land

Have a P&S available as well. Wife has powershot 1000.

Would love to pick up a 17-40, but my wife still isn't excited about the money spent on the 70-200 yet.

The problem is here. Surely she buys enough shoes and bags that your photography hobby is fair. :D

Oh I understand it alright. I'm just not sure my fellow photography friends are getting their cut from the pie. I see a lot of posts about guys concerned with their wives and the money on many hobby forums. I wonder if women have the same problem on their hobbies. I bet not. ;)

I took my 7D w/grip and 2 batteries, 17-40, 24-70, and 70-200 f/2.8 to the drags in a Think Tank Speed racer. I was give out by the end of the day! But I would prolly do it again because I like the way the pics turned out.

If you had to just take one, I guess it would be the 30mm, but Disney is NOT the place for one single focal length, since you often have little flexibility as to where you can be relative to your subject matter. As nice as all of your lenses are, I would suggest either gritting your teeth and buying an 18-55mm IS kit lens for $100, or buying a 17-85 for about $300 if you can afford it, or renting either a 15-85 or 24-105. You have great lenses, but none of them is truly "walk-around" and now you want to walk.

bw!

If you want a 18-55 I am willing to sell you mine, I was just considering putting it up of the forums here.

I agree with this. I'm a Fl native and go to the DIsney parks a lot with my wife and daughter (annual passes every year). I usually just take the 24-70L and it does everything I need it to. granted I'm shooting on a FF camera so the reach is less, but I can get close to the castle and open up the lens to get the whole building without all the people and then at 70mm I can still get good shots of the attractions and my family.

Another agree. Of your current stock the 30mm is probably the best in your collection, and it is The Lens to bring if you're taking only one. However I really agree wrt the 18-55 kit lens. We went last November. While all I had at the time was the 18-55mm kit and the 55-250mm, the 18-55mm was used far more. Now that I have a 50mm f/1.4 and 85mm f1/8 (and want a 28mm f/1.8 for the collection), I'd likely bring the 50 and 28 (if I get it) but think I'd still use the 18-55 much of the time.

In any case, go and have fun!

As I mentioned above, why not rent a 24-105? You could probably get by with just that lens alone.
