Re: Suggestions for camera/lens combo for Italy
In reply to LynniePad, 6 months ago


Where we were, there weren't any issues with large bags, other than carrying it around and the weight involved with doing so. But, we weren't in Rome, so... I DID have it with me at the church where the Shroud of Turin is kept, and had no issues there. Things may change, of course...

I agree with the idea, generally speaking, of not needing too much more than 100mm, unless you're specifically talking about trying to get some shots of Italian wildlife/birds. Most of the time when I was in Italy, I used either the 16-85 or the 10-20. Rarely did I go above that.

As for camera choices, if the OP can afford to do so, and has a desire to do so now, there are some pretty good deals quite often on the T4i that he may find useful. I suggest keeping an eye open along those lines, if it suits his future purposes, as well as this trip. Otherwise, consider renting a good camera, but be sure to get the insurance considering you're going overseas with it.
