Next week I’m traveling to Portugal and will be visiting 2 cities (Porto and Lisbon). I have to travel light, so I will take only one camera and 1-2 lenses. I have two options:

  • take only x100t. This is something I’ve always wanted to try, but never had courage to do it. I have read in some threads that it is a “liberating” experience, so I am tempted to try this time. Any advice regarding using an x100 camera in these cities? I am afraid the 23mm focal will be too tight.
  • Take x-t100 with the 15-45mm kit lens. I have been very happy with this kit during my last trips, but I’m thinking to add a small faster prime lens for low light situations (18mm f2 or buy the Samyang 12mm f2?).

I am not taking both cameras.

What are your suggestions for this destination? Thanks in advance!

I had X-E1 + 18-55 (OiS) and  I did not need other lenses....

"Faster" prime will not help very much.
