Advice on lenses for America trip

Hello, I have just ordered a NEX-7 and I am thinking about which lenses to buy for it for a 3 month trip I am going on to America in April.

At the moment this is my thinking:

  • SEL-16F28 + UWC
  • 18-55mm kit lens
  • SEL-35F18 (Or the Sigma 30mm if I can't afford the Sony 35mm)

However I keep getting a nagging feeling that I might need a telephoto like the SEL-55210 but I will not be able to afford that as well as the SEL-16F28 and SEL-35F18. So I am just wondering what people's opinions are on this? Do I need a telephoto? Is just the 16mm, kit, and 35mm sufficient?

Also if anybody is interested, this is my planned (and very ambitious) route for America.

Thanks in advance.

Sony Alpha NEX-7
