Which wide angle lens for Russia?
Aug 24, 2012

My wife and I are taking a river cruise from Moscow to St Petersburg and will spend several days in each city. I have a full frame Canon 5D and plan to take only two lenses along: a 70-300mm for shots from the boat and for architectural details, and a wide angle zoom. I have 17-40mm and 24-105 mm zooms. I'm tempted to take the 24-105 because it is image stabilized, but I worry that I may wish I had the wider 17mm lens for the interior of churches and in case I can't back up enough to photograph nearby buildings. Anyone have a suggestion which wide angle zoom to take? Thanks
