Re: I cannot believe I am asking this.....

Close your eyes and imagine yourself being in Venice ... on a large square or in a narrow alley. Look around (eyes still closed) and 'see' what you want to shoot. People, architecture, abstract colors ... your own kids ... Now imagine you can't take a particular shot because you have the wrong camera/lens for the occasion. Would it matter? Would you be able to look for other motives instead?
If you do this exercise for a while you should know what you need/want.

This of course only works because we all know already how Venice looks like from the many photos we all have seen.

So perhaps ignore the camera, focus on your creativity and try not to bring the usual photos home.
