    depends what type of camera u using... if film slr probably a 17-40mm L lens... for dslr can use sigma 12-24mm lens... one thing tho... there is no such thing as a specific type of lens for a specific shot... u can also take landscapes with telephotos... depends on teh effect u want...
    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    depends on what you want to shott and how much you want to carry. there're times when I just bring along a 28-200 for travel.
