What lenses to bring for a hiking shoot?
Oct 10, 2012

Hi guys,

I’m visiting New Zealand soon, will have two to three days free to visit Egmont national park and some gardens. Obviously my aim is to take lots of scenery shots and flower macros. These are the lenses I have –

Sigma 18-50mm f/3.5-5.6, Nikon 18-200 VR, Nikon 50mm f/1.8, Nikon 85mm f/3.5.

I plan to bring the 85mm for macros, but I don’t know if I should take the 18-200 for everything else,  or just bring the sigma for the wide angle shots.  I want to keep my kit as light as possible given that there will be significant hiking involved. I will be bringing a tripod, but not an external flash.

What do you think?
