Re: Lens suggestion for 7D

If I'm going on a trip and I don't want to carry multiple lenses for my 7d I tend to take the Tamron 18-270.

Not the best optically but the range is very useful and the image stabilisation works very well.

If you're after better IQ, and had been thinking about taking two lenses you could consider taking something like a 70-300 and a G1X, to save having to change lenses all the time. The G1X is cheap compared to some lenses, good for IQ according to reports but not if you need fast focussing.

I have a G12 (bought before the G1X came out) which I use to supplement my 7d on trips and sometimes I even leave the 7d at home to save weight.
