    I would suggest tamron 17-50 f2.8 or maybe a nikkor 18-135. It's quite hard to tell what kind of shots you will get in Bali, so the safe bet is a 1-size-fit-all lens.

    Just curious. What other lenses do you have besides a 50 1.8 that complements your D300?
    D∞X, 1-∞ mm F0.17. I like to show off my equipment list because I'm pro. My Flickr

    50 f1.8 can be used for traveling. Affordable and good has to be 18-70 kit lens. Not too sure if you can still get it new.
