That's a lovely shot - I swear I saw it somewhere other than here before.
Thanks! I swear it's mine ;-)
I have posted in another couple of threads and submitted to PEG (failing to having it accepted but just a tiny bit.... )

Maybe I can take the 50-135, 8-16 and 30mm... Humm that might work...

Just came back from Venis a week ago. My kit was 18-55, 50-200 and 43mm

Most of the pictures were taken at 18mm, Venis is narrow.

If I was going and could only take one lens, it would be the 8-16 no question. If I could take another, it would something for detail shots of walls and such (like the 30mm). And if I could take a third, then a general purpose zoom (like the 50-135). Sounds like a plan. But you'll be kicking yourself if you leave behind the UWA...

PEG probably, I am not surprised it wasn't far off, I wouldn't take it too
Personally! I think it's a great shot!

Decided to go with the 8-16mm, 30mm and 50-135mm

So far have only used the 30mm, quite enjoying being locked to one focal length, thinking I should do this more often! Waiting for the right opportunity with the 8-16, don't want yet another photo with masses of boring sky and foreground!

Nice decision. I think you'll find, once home, that the bulk of your shots are with the 8-16.

Don't forget to post some of your images when you get back from this beautiful city.

Ended up mainly shooting with the 30mm:




Also the 50-135mm was quite fun:




I must get around to processing and posting some more.

PS barely used the UWA - found the compositions too messy, and really enjoyed the 30mm challenge!

Looks awesome man. 50-135 definitely nailed the color reproduction. So vibrant!

Ok guys, hopefully a bit of fun...off to Venice at the weekend. I'm aiming to travel light, a body and two-three lenses plus one set of AAs in the K30

Out of lenses in my sig, what would you take and why?

No thoughts are wrong, I'm just intrigued to see what others would attempt to focus on in Venice (I'm thinking I need to get better at imagining what I will capture before I go, rather than the normal belt and braces approach!)
Venice at night is unbelievable - the buildings, the water and gondolas and bridges, AND the artists painting in dim light. Take a fast lens!

I was in Venice for 2 days in April, and I shot mostly with my 10-20mm, and 18-135mm lens. If you are shooting only daytime shot then no tripod is needed, but if you like nightime shots a tripod is a must, in my opinion. I am trying to attach a shot taken at 8:29pm and is a 3 second exposure of the Grand Canal.

You'll need to keep trying, it's not here so far.

Here's a shot of the Grand Canal taken 4-29-13 at 8:29pm. It was a great city to shoot in and I hope to return someday.

I wondered about whether you would really use an ultrawide (fun but only for the right occasions for me) I haven't been to Venice since film days, and shot mostly with the 50 and 28mm with an 80-200 for distance. Most of my obligatory gondola shots I took were 28mm, but film's rough equivalent of the 30 worked a lot then, too.
