17-40 or 24-70 with 5D III ... outdoor shoot art and kids
2 months ago

I am shooting a group of school age kids this weekend while they tour the city.  It will be a walking tour where they will see a lot of large murals on buildings.  The organizer wants shots of kids with the murals in the background.

Anyone have any preference for lens?  I have a 17-40L and 24-70 L.  My usual preference is for the 24-70 as I like the option of being able to zoom if I need to and I am thinking 24 is wide enouph when I need to get the mural.  I would try and use something like f8 to eliminate any issue of DOF.  I also have a 70-200L but I would not use that for the street shots.  Day might be a little overcast but I am sure there will be plenty of light as it will be mid-day.

Camera is 5D Mark III.

Thanks in advance for any help.
