    I'll go for a 70-300mm tele, ND4, ND8 and CPL filters and maybe even a ND Grad Filter. Also consider investing in a good tripod and ballhead, and wireless remote as it helps.

    hi ts,

    if u are shooting distant (agar agar 100m or more) landscape, why not use your existing tammy 17-50 (very sharp lens) to do a series of sweeping photos and stitch together to form a pano?

    there is a very good stitching freeware call "HUGIN", much better than the auto-merge function of some popular image editing software. although this method may not give you 100% of the kind of distortion found in ultra-wide angle lens ("HUGIN" can input distortion after stitching, but i dont have a comparison of it with UW lens), it does offer an alternative without spend $$$ (times are bad).

    Pretty interesting advise here. Just got back from batam doing some scenary shots of the horizon but then not very nice as the sun wasnt up. pics turn out "bland"
