We're going to California in June for our honeymoon.  First time in the US [apart from a brief stop in Anchorage 30 years ago on a flight from London to Tokyo, but since I didn't leave the transit lounge that doesn't count].  We'll be there for two weeks: San Francisco - Yosemite - Bishop - [Death Valley] - Las Vegas - Palm Springs - LA - Morro Beach - Monterey.

Having sold the EOS 5 MkII kit all I have now is a Panasonic GX7 with the 20 f1.7 and the Panasonic 100-300.  What other lenses would you recommend if you were doing this trip?

Hmmm, it seems you'd benefit from wide or super-wide angle and a fast, short tele in addition to your current kit.

Depending on budget, one of the 12mm zooms (now four choices if memory serves) and I'll also suggest the 45/1.8. Those four will cover a vast focal length range and if you get a slower zoom, then the two fast primes will step in when light is low. I'd also add a pola filter to the wide zoom.

Be sure to wave when you're here!

Cheers,

Rick
