| p.1 #1 · Some advice on landscape lenses |
This is particularly in regards to the Swiss Alps, since I'll be in Switzerland till the end of August.
Anyways, I have the Nikon 18-35g, 28-300g, and Samyang 14/2.8. Now the issue is weight. I can comfortably hike with my D600 and 2 out of the 3 lenses, but all three is pushing it. I'd assuming I should only take one of the 14 or 18-35 and definitely take the 28-300.
So far, I haven't brought the 14mm with me and not the 18-35, so I'm not sure how restrictive it would be having only the 14 on the wide end. I will say that the 18-35 has been OUTSTANDING so far, and when I needed to go a bit wider, handheld panorama came out very much to my liking. However, I know the 14 can offer a more unique perspective beisdes just being wider.
I'd assume there will be moments when I'll need something much longer, though I'm not all that experience with landscape photography or the swiss alps. It would just seem a bit silly to take both the 14 and 18-35. I COULD attempt to take all three, but it would be a bit hard on my back. And there'll probably be times when I want to bring a tripod for a sunrise/set and will definitely be limited to only two lenses then.
