    Default Needs lens recommendation for vacation

    I am thinking of getting a wide-angle lens for my europe trip, currently using kit lens for my 1000D. What are the possible choices I can look into as I intend to just bring 1 lens for my trip.

    If you only want to bring one lens, you kit lens should do just fine.

    Or you can get the 15-85

    Your kit lens is not wide enough? I'd say it should be fine.

    I suppose u find the 18mm of the kit lens not wide enough.
    For only 1 ultra wide lens to bring along, maybe u can consider Canon 10-22mm or Tokina 12-24mm.
    Provided u do not mind the range < 25mm.

    Yup, but then he can't just bring 1 lens.

    TS, the kit lens is a good-enough all-rounder.

    Look at the priceguides, or the many lens review sites... There's also the Tamron and Sigma lenses such as the 18-250 and 18-270

    16-85 is slightly wider and provides a nice zoom range for much shooting purposes, though the slight increase in wideness might not be as appreciable as the other ultra wide zooms.

    Otherwise a superzoom packs plenty of convenience in one lens. 18-200 was my previous fav travel lens.
