    Default Singapore Garden Festival, which lens to bring

    Hi, can Bro/Sis here advise on what lens should I bring for the Singapore Garden Festival?

    Sigma 2470 EX or CZ1680 or Sigma 70300

    Should I bring External flash?


    Thanks

    You need wide CZ1680 to cover the full area display, closeup with Sigma 70300 and flash to fill in the light if is dark.
    Canon 5D II, 20-35 f/2.8L, 28-80 f/2.8L, 70-200 f/4L IS, 100-300 f/5.6L, 100 f/2.8 Macro

    Either the CZ 16-80mm or 24-70mm will do fine. A flash would be good too.

    To TS, bring you CZ and 70-300, tripod. unless you are planning to use High ISO, then ditch the tripod.

    sorry, no natural light, all tungsten and flourescent.

    if you are into macro, bring your longest macro lens coz exhibits can be pretty far away.
    flash is good to have.
    The sooner you get it, the longer you enjoy it.

    I would bring a long macro and a tripod. A short zoom is good for the larger exhibits. And as mentioned, it's all artificial lighting...
