p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Venice + 24/1.4 : anyone used this combo ?


I'm going to Venice this Thursday for 4 days. I've already been there twice, but the last time was about 6-7 years ago and I was shooting film with a Leica.

I'd like to go back and get a different perspective on things, so was thinking of borrowing some equipment from a friend.

I thought of the 24/1.4 and the 45 PCE (in addition to my 85/1.4)

I generally would be thinking about a 28mm or 35mm as the general "go-to" lens, but has anyone done Venice with the 24/1.4 on a full frame camera ?

Would love to see some points of view

Thanks

Mark

Actually my 3 most used lenses for travel and street photography is the 24mm 1.4G, 45mm PC-E and 85mm 1.4G. So in my eyes you have the perfect kit.

Those 3 lenses are all you need. You might want to throw in a small lens if you're sick of carrying lenses that are above 500g, but i think that shouldn't be an issue since it's just 4 days. For me, id' be happy with just the 24 and 85mm, theyre the 2 lenses i shoot streets with. I could shoot anything with the 24, because it's good for wides and also close-ups/portraits. Not sure how it'd work out in venice but if i were in your shoes i'd bring the same lenses.

I've shot with everything from a 16mm to a 1000mm in Venice so I think any focal length will "work" there much like they work anywhere else. It depends more on your shooting style than anything else.

Very evocative images. Many remind me of film noir scenes from the "The Third Man".

Very nice images Donald!.

I'm going to Venice in June and I'm taking the following with me:
D800E, 16/2.8 AI-s, 28/1.8G, 85/1.8G and 24-120VRII

I'm still doubting if I will take the 16-35VR with me
I'll try to use the 28 and 85 as much as possible.

On my last trip to Italy I only used the 24 1.4 and never regretted it.. worked out great.
I posted a thread which had some of the images titled italy with one lens..

here are some of the images from that trip, all taken with the 24 1.4.
