I was wondering, for those that tour with a DSLR, what is your favorite lens? That one lens you can't do without!
I'm going on a long tour in a couple of months, but can't decide what lens (or multiple?) to take. I really love photography and I'm willing to spend some extra on a proper lens, it's just that I can't make a decision here.
I have a Canon 1000D wich came with a standard kit lens (18 to 55) and a zoom (70 to 300). I rarely use the zoom, and the standard lens is not very sharp especially in low light. So I was thinking of upgrading to a Tamron 17 to 50mm 2.8, which is still an affordable standard lens for both portraits and landscapes.
Then again, I love large landscapes so an ultra wide Sigma 10 to 20 mm would be a dream, but really stretching the budget there and perhaps its uses are pretty limited.
Or I could just get one of those very cheap Canon 50mm 1.8 lenses I hear so many good things about, and manage with what I have.
