Which lens to buy for a cruise
Feb 25, 2013

Hello, I'm not really new here. I've been a member since 2007 but was inactive for a while so my account has been disabled. In any case I'm back

I'm going on a cruise with the Oasis of the Seas (Western Caribbean) in March and I have a chance to buy a new lens and I'm choosing between EF 70-200 f/2.8 L II IS USM and EF 16-35 f/2.8 L II USM  I think I can use both the 16-35 and the 70-200 but only have the budget for one right now (I know the price difference is big, but I have the option of either of the two).

I'm planning to bring my 5d2 and 24-105 f/4 L as my all around. The 70-200 for shooting para-sailers, distant ships, islands, etc and the 16-35 for shooting in the ship. I have a 10-22 for my old 30D, but for obvious reasons I can't use that on my 5d2 but I love the wide angle for landscape and dramatic shots.

I've never been on a cruise before so I'm not sure what to expect. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!
