So.... how about this setup..

15FE, 24/2.8, 35/2, 50/1.4, 85/1.8


Kinda getting away from your "teach yourself to cope" approach to this, eh?

Why not just the 15/35/85?

15/35/85?

That sounds really hard core...

hmm.... sounds like fun though

Each of the lens are roughly twice as long in focal length as each other....

Discreet,

Your lens choices exactly match up with mine. I have and use the 28/1.8 on the 1.3x body with good results. The soft corners only show up with shooting wide open and usually it is never an issue.

I see you have the 24-70/2.8L listed. (I also understand you do not want to take the L zooms with you on this trip). For my needs when traveling "light" with a 1D or 1D mkII my 28-70/2.8 and the 50/1.4 makes a very good combination. The 28-70 takes up about the same space and weight as my 28/50/85 and gives up little in image qualtiy with less lens switching The 50/1.4 is my evening/street lens.

If your a wide angle lover or PJ style shooter the suggestions to take a 17-40/16-35 may be a better way to go. I am not trying to talk you out of going with your primes just suggesting you examine why you want to shift to primes for this trip when you have some great lenses in your kit already.

In any event let us know how your trip goes!

Stay safe.

Well, I'm a 35/85 guy as it is. I don't really miss the 50mm focal length, for the most part. But that's on 1.6 crop.

On film I used a 35/85 combination + (1,4 TC) as a light travelsetup. On a 1,6 crop camera 24/50/85 combination.

If you really wanted to travel light I would just bring the 17-40 and a 85 f/1.8. Mayby a 50 f/1.8 becuse its so light and portable.

There are no primes that will give you a wide enough FOV (Besides the 14 Canon or Sigma or a fisheye lens).

A good walkabout lens is far more useful than 3 primes IMO.

But thats Just my 2 cents. _peace_

Discreet, 28f1.8, 50f1.4, 100f2, all 58mm thread - that should do the trick..

Nice to see you turning towards primes now.. who's the Prime Minister now ehh?
