Re: Shooting in a museum

I used a Canon 17-55 f2.8 in Italy last year to shoot the Vatican and a lot of museums and cathedrals. Most do not allow flash or tripods/monopods so you need a fast lens. The 17-55 did great. Here is one from the Siena Duomo - it was handheld looking up at 1/15s at f4. There were quite a few places where I had to use f2.8 to get a high enough shutter speed even with the IS to get really sharp pictures.
