    I won't be going back there so soon though. My next trip will be its neighbour - Japan.

    Also, what combinatoin of lens should I bring, to shoot landscape and family photos?
    • 18-55 kit
    • 50mm f1.8
    • 10-22
    • 70-300


    I would have to consider how useful and their weight.

    Thanks a lot for your help!
    The top of my list would be the 10-20 as i'm into wide angle. As for the rest, maybe you can bring the 18-55 and 70-300 too.

    that is true but such threads are better than "should i bring my DSLR to country x? will the cold weather damage my camera? " They forgot that the people who invented cameras live in countries with 4 seasons.

    Unhappy Re: Travelling to Korea, what lenses?

    Anyone else with similar problem of moisture entering weather-seal cameras?

    D300/18-200 VR Combo (Lens on the whole time)
    - Temperature in bus (26-28 degree)
    - Heavy snowfall with strong winds and low temperature (-14 degree)
    - Time spent outside 30 odd minutes
    - Camera strap dripping wet in bus
    - Temperature differences of 40 odd degrees
    - Condensation inside top LCD panel and view finder

    Wiping my camera dry was not an immediate option, as I had to settle my boys first. 2 minutes after boarding bus, condensation appear. I suspect the camera's weather seals and camera body had different rate of expansion and contraction (rubber via alloy), so the sudden temperature spike in the bus from the outside temperature, resulted in some moisture slipped through the 'cracks'.
