In just about a week I’ll set off on a car trip with my son through northern Arizona and southern Utah. It won’t be a photographic trip; just a vacation so I can show him some of my favorite places, such as Canyon de Chelly and Monument Valley. That said, I’ll want to make some photos. Now, I own three pretty fast zooms (11-16, 17-55, 70-200, all f/2.8) and if I carried two of them, I could cover a vast range of focal lengths. But I want to travel as lightly as possible, so my plan is to carry two prime lenses: the 24mm f/2.8 and the 105mm f/2.8 Micro. Granted, one D7000 body and those particular lenses prove that “traveling light” is a relative expression, but I have a lot of confidence in these lenses and the way I compose with them.
Anyone want to talk me out of it?
