Re: Travel Lens - If you could only have one?

On a typical vacation which might last 10 days, on eight days I typically use an 18-135, and on the other two days I use a superzoom like the Tamron 16-300.

The reason not to use the 16-300 everyday of course is the IQ is noticeably poorer, especially at focal lengths over about 50 mm. But somedays a superzoom just fits in better with the day's activities and I'm not after great shots as much a memories with the family. But the other eight days, the lesser IQ would bother me the extent I would not feel like taking some of the pictures.
