| p.1 #1 · Lens choice for dusty environment? |
In a couple of weeks I am going to be visiting Phoenix. One afternoon I will be taking a group dune buggy type tour of the desert. Will have a group of about 4 vehicles and plan on photographing some action shots of the vehicles plus well be doing stops a few places to take pictures landscapes, cacti, etc. Should even have a chance to get a nice sunset, if the clouds cooperate.
Obviously while the cars are running there will be significant dust kicked up. I am worried about getting dust in lenses. I plan to avoid any lens changes, unless things calm down for the sunset. The two choices I am considering are the 18 200 VR 1 on my D300 for the action shots, and the D800e with the 70 200 VRII as an option. Maybe renting a 24 to 70 f2.8, or some other lens, might be good to consider as well. The versatility of the 18 200 or the 24 - 70 would be great, but I am concerned about lenses that are not internally focused since there seems to be more chance for dust to enter. Thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated.
