Re: Lens Advice for Newzealand Lanscapes!

I'd go with:

  • 10-18mm
  • Either: 18-200mm or 18-55mm (depending on your size/weight preference)
  • 30mm Sigma

The 10-18mm is a wonderful landscape lens, if you can afford it (I own and love it). The 16mm+convertors would be an option, especially if you wish to find out whether you will shoot wide-extreme wide much, but the 10-18mm is higher quality optically. From what I've seen, the 10-18mm @18mm is pretty much as good as the Sigma 19mm, so you wouldn't need to take that.

The 18-200mm or 18-55mm I'd use as your main travel lens, on the camera most of the time.

The 30mm is a brilliant standard prime, useful in a lot of situations.
