Re: What's a really good lens to take to an aquarium?

I've been to a few aquariums in the Northeast (Norwalk, Boston, and Mystic), and every time I bring three lenses that I use most: 28-70/2.8, 105/2.8G macro, and 24/1.4G.The 28-70 is my general purpose lens, and the 105 and 24 are more specific to certain situations. Like in a tank of jellyfish, what I thought was slime/dirt on the inside of the glass, turned out to be tiny jellyfish larvae that I was able to capture with the macro lens. I used the 24 for the shark tanks at Norwalk's and Boston's aquariums. A fast lens is always helpful when in low light situations. I would love to go to the one in Monterey Bay one of these days
