ok vacation lens decision?

I did an exposure plot of my last trip and found that under 70 is my most often shot. I have come to a decision on what I am taking on my trip to Disney . The package includes 1.sigma 17-70 general walk around lens 2. my ltds (21,43,70) for my prime only days 3. my 10-17 for fun. I am also thinking of maybe the 85 takumar. opinions? comments? suggestions? alternatives?

Quite an equipment list to chose from! We went to Disney earlier this year which justified the purchase of a DA 18-250. In my normal day to day 70 is my most used focal point for shots of the kids, but in my opinion, Disney changes the lay of the land and I can only imagine the shots I would have missed had I been switching lenses. I kept the new lens on 95% of the time, using the full range.
10-17...a great idea! A focal higher than 70....absolutely. I think I'd also take a fast 50 for some of the indoor shots where you can't use a flash, or the evening shots with the lit up carousel etc.
Have fun, and post some shots!
