Re: Lens choice for Trip to Italy


I am italian and live in Cagliari (about to move though). Just a couple fo questions and comments.

1 A mount modified EF-s 10-22(mechanically limited to 12-22) (FF equivalent of 15-29) for about 90% of photos.

I thought FF and EFs lenses were not compatible. How do you do that? Mirror? Vignetting?

2 A mount modified FD 50mm f1.2L (all manual everything) for superb low light use when you can get something to stabilise the rig on (usually possible). It's tiny compared to the EF equivalent lens.

This is really cool.

I've never seen or heard directly of any mal-practise of stealing gear there.

Italy is usually quite safe.

I agree I would definitely go wide (17-40). I would add a compact camera as allrounder.
