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.

Ahh... There's the problem. Never , ever tell your wife the true cost of your camera equipment. Everything I buy costs @ $200.00 , honest.:cool:

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?

I was going to recommend the 70-200, then I saw that it is the 2.8 IS version...
Another vote for the sigma 30!

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

lol...and I just sold both the 18-55 and 55-250 to help out with the 70-200.

Will look into renting the 24-105.

I want to buy an 18-200 before I go to Disney again. That would probably be the only time it would get used as well.

The lens you take depends on the pictures you want. With your lenses I would probably lean to the 70-200 (and hate the weight) or the 85. Of course I tend to like longer lenses for everyday/walk around usage. I'd end up relying on the point and shoot for closer wider angle shots.

30mm but I agree with renting a lens if you can.

Hard to lug the 70-200 around all day at disney. Disney is tiring enough without it. 30mm is nice, but that's not much reach and you will wind up frustrated. Even 85 is really not enough for Disney.

I went through the same idea. I thought about the 18-200, but I think the G11 is a better purchase. $479 and you have a small, light camera for vacations. It rocks.

Definitely 30mm. For travel and street photography you want at least a semi wide.

I got back from a Disney trip yesterday. Just took the wife's Sony TX5. At times, as I watched people peering through their D90s (the official camera of Disney), I was jealous and wished I had toughed it out with my 500D. But mostly I was happy not to be lugging something else around, and having to worry about it instead of enjoying the family vacation. So I would vote for a non-DSLR solution. I like the TX5 because it is waterproof, but if I were just doing the "dry" parks I'd be thinking about a super zoom of some kind.

All that being said, if you are taking a DSLR to WDW don't then limit yourself with one lens. I'd at least take two or three and maybe use one per day, depending on the activities. I can certainly see wanting to have the 30, but you will get frustrated with lack of range. I can also see not wanting to drag the 70-200 around all day.

I just got back from disney yesterday. I took the 50mm 1.8 and a sigma 18-50 2.8-4.5

Most of the shots were on the sigma, but for the shots where my kid posed with the Disney characters, I used the nifty, and I'm quite pleased with how it came out.

My kid is 7, so not really old enough for me to turn her lose, so I felt good about not having more reach (We actually went to watch the shuttle launch, and I gave my new Sigma 50-500 with OS a work out)

Also, as a personal challenge, I used the 50mm to shoot about 25min of HD video during the parade of lights... I'm amazed at how nicely it turned out.

Your mileage may vary, but I know I _needed_ the wide angle for some of the shots I took.

I live in San Diego, have a 16-month old son, and frequent Sea World (annual pass). Lugging around a gripped camera with multiple lenses and a toddler is a nightmare.

My recommention would be the 30mm and a little foot shuffling and you are good.

Those suggesting the 70-200 f2.8L - are you nuts!!?? What a way to ruin a good family vacation. "Hold on while daddy figures out where to put his giant lens so we can go on a ride" or "Daddy would love to carry you, but he is tired from lugging this brick around all day".

Honestly, I was happy with just the 18-55 IS. Got tons of great shots. I brought my 28mm f2.8, too, but rarely used it.

Went to WDW in April and will echoes some others here - was quite happy taking just a point-n-shoot and the SLR+17-55. Used the P&S in the parks everyday and the SLR when there was less walking/rides/running.

Just having a single prime lens would have frustrated the hell out of me in the parks. But if in conjunction with the P&S you mentioned, it could work fine.
