Re: Australia travel tips

If you have the lenses and the means to carry them you can use anything from 24mm to 200mm quite easily. So something like a RX10 would be ideal other wise a couple of zooms to cover this range.

Australian cities are the least dense in the world in population so even the centers of the cities can be quite spread out and will need some comfortable shoes. But it also pays to have a decent wide angle as well to get a different perspective and there are areas where tele lenses just  won't give you any context. Featureless street scenes could just be anywhere.

This really is where the now classical 16-35, 24-70 and 70-200 would all come in handy, although I would expect for the cities themselves the 24-70 will get used the most. Rural areas would most definitely be 70-400 territory but the 70-200 would be very useful but you would need to work harder to get all the coverage you may want.
