Disney Trip--Lens recommendations?
Dec 30, 2005

Going to Disney in May with wife, 3 and 5 year old. Want to minimize gear to take. My lenses: Tokina 12-24, EF 28-135 IS, EF 85 1.8, EF 75-300 IS, 18-55 kit and Rebel XT.

With kids, I'm not going to want to change/carry lenses too often. I'm thinking having 12-24 and 28-135 should cover most of my shooting needs (kids-posed and action, scenics of the parks, characters with kids, etc.) and maybe 28-135 and 75-300 at Animal Kingdom. For those that have done this trip, can you give me your experiences on which lenses you found most useful?

Have also thought about picking up the EF-S 17-85 IS as a 1 lens solution, but it might be too short and involve additional purchase. What do you think. Thanks.
