Which lens should I take to Australia?

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I will go to Sydney and Cairns for about 10 days in the end of June.


I have 18-55, 14/2.8 and 35/2 lens.


I'd like to take 2 of them and I think the 14/2.8 must be taken.


Any suggestion for the remaining one? zoom 18-55 or prime 35?


Or any other opinions?

For Australia a lens with a bag ( to put a kangaroo in ) .

For Austria a lens with with good profile to climb the Alps.

For America a 66 mm lens to shoot the Route.

For Germany a super wide angle lens, for everything is bigger there,

For Africa no chrome body.


Are you kidding? Is this a serious question ? Do you know what to do with a camera ? Do you know why they invented the Zoom ?

Stay at home and spend your money to buy a book on photography an go for a photo-school.


Which bastard sold you the extra 14 and 35 mm ?  Because of the wider aperture and the DOF ? Wider aperture .... and what about rising the ISO ?Rubbish. Waist of money !

The 18 - 55 mm is the must. Extra batteries. An UV filter. Enjoy your photo-days.

Well you can take me with you.  I'll gladly be your Sherpa.


However, if you won't, then 'd take all three and if I HAD to whittle it to two:  The 18-55 and the 14.


That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

As you may have taken a hint from above, there is nothing geographically specific about any lens. On my last trip (Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks) I carried everything from a fisheye, an 114° 14mm full-frame lens to an 83× zoom with a maximum field of view equal to a 2000mm lens. All were used to the max. My X-Pro1 had the 8mm Samyang fisheye, 14mm, 18mm, 35mm and 60mm. Whatever you have, will be useful.

      I saw a post of 2015 about the same topic but in that thread it was about 3 prime lenses. It was really interesting to see the results. But what about 2 prime lenses? This question is different because you have to limit yourself even more. 
      What is your 2 prime lens combo? For which shooting style do you need them? How do you use them? Why do you like them?

      I find that when using my Fuji 100-400 lens with the matching 1.4X extender at full reach my photos reveal a sort of halo effect around the subjects as shown in this small section of a recent picture.
      The photo was taken a 1/1000th hand held and I have tried keeping the OS on and OS off, but with no difference. I have no problems when not using the extender and get pin sharp pictures throughout the range
      Any thoughts and ideas would be welcome

      Modern Fujinon lens have electronical parts that may fail due to water damage or other reasons. In most cases it worths pay for repair, but sometimes repair costs are too high and its cheaper to just buy another sample. This Fujinon XF 27mm F2.8 sample was electronically broken, so I've found relatively simple way to convert it into fully manual focus lens.

    • i'm 90% sure there will be an X-E4 the X-Pro3 and X-T4 have both been more focused towards professional use. i believe fuji should have a competitor for the sony a6000 line in the form of their X-E line. it will probably not get IBIS like the X-T4 but will get the same features as the new X100v just my opinion...and my hope...
    • They don't appear burned, but a but too shifted to the right. Perhaps is just a matter of taste. But as I say, most pictures, to just look 'normal', I have to compensate is by -1/3 or more typically -2/3.
    • Yes - provided you are using a version of the Adobe software which supports your camera. If you are using a subscription version of the Adobe software and keeping it updated then your camera should be supported.
    • Good morning friends! i have been browsing the internet but can’t seem to find a clear answer. Are Fujifilm camera profiles and film simulations now available for RAW files in Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Canera Raw please? I have been using this software for too many years to make a switch easily so I would be grateful for any feedback Thank you
