    Ask yourself, what kind of shots will you be taking ?


    As for me, I bring my standard travel gears
    - DSLR
    - 17-40mm f4
    - 85mm f1.8
    - light tripod (SLIK sprint pro)
    See my Photo Gallery at the Clubsnap

    Hi Sumokon. The 18-135 is a good all-around walkabout lens since it gives you a lot of range from wide to zoom. Taking landscapes at 18 is already good enough. For fireworks and night photography, you need some kind of a tripod for stability. If you like to take pictures in clubs at night however, you need to get a flash. This lens is not a good lens for this kind of environment but with an external flash you get better results. Good luck.

    Hi sumokon

    Price as advise by westwest2.
    You can get it from HK as the price there are more competitive.

    Yes, you kit lense can also be use for night scene, but you would need a tripod.

    hi digisnap, I'm also going to India by next month. For sure, I'll be bringing my flash with me. For the night shots in bars and streets at night, what kind of lens should I bring along? I wanna be able to keep taking shots while moving around the streets/bars.

    night streets with light, consider ultra wide angle with moderately large aperture (super large aperture may not exist). bar, i'm not sure cos never shoot before.

    for bar i would suggest the 50mm 1.8 quite good but for really uber cool shots use a super wide like 10 22. very nice effects.

    i am going bangkok in a few months and i feel for my club shots i will bring my pns cam. it will be a real hassle carrying a dslr around in a club.

    keep the dslr for like everything else but bring the pns to the club.
