advice on a lens for my a300
Jul 17, 2010

hello, i am pretty new to photography and don't know a lot about cameras or lenses. i'll be taking a trip to china in a few months, and am trying to decide what equipment i'll need. i have the kit 18-70 3.5-5.6 lens that came with my camera, and a sony 75-300 zoom. my two concerns are these:

1. should i be looking at something like a 18-250 to cut down on lens changing and reduce dust introduction into my camera? or are these inferior lenses to what i've already got?

2. do you think i should consider a wider angle lens (for great wall landscape shots), or a lower f stop lens (for lower light situations, like dawn at the wall, or the terra cotta warriors)?
am i over-thinking this, or missing anything?
any of your thoughts are appreciated.
