    I would go with a general 28-100+ mm equivalent zoom ...... good range, not expensive and light/compact

    I don't think lenses are manufactured with a particular geographical location in mind!!

    I believe you mean what lens is good for travel, particularly in Europe.

    1. UWA (Nikon 12-24, Sigma 10-20, Tamron 10-24, Tokina 12-24...)
    2. Standard Zoom lens (Nikon 18-200VR, Sigma 18-200OS, Tamron 18-270VC)
    3. Cir-Pol...

    I assumed that since he posted in a Nikon sub-forum, he should be referring to Nikon equipment.

    UWA 10-20 or 12-24 is a must have for Europe.
    Personally, i will bring only my 12-24 and 70-200 f2.8 and a tripod. tats all!

    In return: Is there any good lens for Asia?
    For Europe I strongly suggest Europe-made lenses, Carl Zeiss is a must. You can't show up there with some el cheapo lenses made in China or Malaysia. That's impossible!

    Get those lens that are Made in Europe, more suitable for the weather there and it perform the best in that country made which can make a lousy photographer produce PRO pictures

    Why is there such a thread every now and then on which lens for which country? If you are shooting landscape, get a wide angle. Walkabout shoot = standard zoom.

    First you must ask yourself what you wanna shoot, otherwise you will get all sorts of recommendations which does not suit your needs.

    HAHAHAHA....Better get a European camera too. Anyway, from 10mm - 600mm are all useable range for anywhere . It's a matter of what you wanna shoot. TS, wat lens you have now?

    When going to a new place that you are not familiar with, it is always good to bring along an 18-200mm on crop & 28-300mm on FF...
