I'm travelling to Guatemala/Mexico this winter. Focussing on Maya Ruins.
What should i take?

I have:
da 12-24
da 17-70
da 55-300
da 18-55 wr
da 50-200 wr
F 24-50


ricoh grd 3

I can make various combo's here, but i do want to travel light.
DA15 seems obvious then, but i do like the versatility of da12-24.
Pretty happy about the 17-70 as well.
F24-50 is quite a surprising allrounder on apsc.

Let's say i want to take two lenses with me or one lens and mx1/grd..

I wasnt to central America, only Peru but it may apply the same here. I would take something wide-angle, either prime or zoom or fish (to be de-fished if necessary) and some universal zoom from like 28-105 (35mm equiv). Travelling light is the key on those tours.

You dont have the 16-85 or 18-135 which would pretty much do everything. Maybe 18-135 as a used bargain and the 12-24.

PS: some ND filters and a travel tripod could be a useful addition.

PPS: if you dont want to buy lenses, the 12-24 and 17-70.

thank you! :-)

yep, i have thought of taking the 12-24. It is such a versatile lens..
Maybe that & simply my mx1. The combo 12-24 & 17-70 is too much to carry
