I only have the following

Kit Lense 18-55

Sigma 19mm

Sigma 30mm

I though of taking the kit and 19mm to be versatile. If I had teh 18-200, I'd take it but I dont.

So... 19mm or kit? decisions decisions.....

Hi, im from Lima, if you only can take one lens with you take the 19mm, just because its a little sharper than the kit lens in wide angle. Miraflores and Barranco have beautifull architecture and landscape and the 19mm fit better.

Another thing, maybe its not too important but i think the silver kit can call more the attention of robbers than a black lens. Miraflores and Barranco are safe places... but if you go to the center of Lima always take care of your camera. Dont forget visti the magical circuit of the water, the park of the wall, and the catacombs.

Enjoy your trip

Hola. I'm from Lima as well and you bring a good point about 'los choros'. One of the reasons that I was thinking to get the Sigma, is cause is smaller and is black as my camera.

Sigma it is.....
