5D Mark II with 24-70 or 40D with 17-55 ?
Jun 11, 2012

I own a 40D and a 24-70 L. I am heading out to Budapest in July for my brother's wedding and travel for 10 days. I need a versatile lens and something that will work well in low light situations. I was going to rent the 17-55 for the 40D for the IS. Now I am wondering if it wouldn't be smarter just to rent a 5D mark II or III and use the 24-70 that I have.

Thoughts? Obviously, there is a significant price increase vs renting the lens or the body, but I don't want to get there and have regrets that I didn't make the most of this trip. I'd welcome any other advice regarding lenses to consider. My other lens is a 50 1.4 and i will probably bring that along as well in addition to my trusty g10.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts and advice.
