1 week trip to Paris with 7D
Apr 3, 2010

I'm sorry, but this is another "which lenses" thread. (Please feel free to move on if you are sick of such threads.)

To be fair, I have searched and read similar threads, including this one which I found very helpful:

However, sometimes advice is more useful when it's directed at your specific situation. So here's mine:

Since most of you have short attention span, here's the short version:

  • 7D

  • 7 days in Paris at the end of April

  • first time in Paris, so likely hitting all the usual tourist stops

  • would like to limit to at most 3 lenses (and as light as possible)

Current lenses:

  • 10-22

  • 15-85

  • 17-55

  • 70-300IS

  • 85/1.8

  • 100L

  • 100-400L

  • 70-200/4L IS (money already set aside for this, but not purchased yet)

Which ones would you bring?

Also, yes or no to the following:

  • 580EX II

  • light-ish but not compact aluminum tripod

  • 13" notebook

Thanks in advance.

(A longer description of my situation in the next post, for those wanting more informaiton.)

Let's all ask ourselves every now and then: Have I taken
more photos than posted messages on DPR this week?
