Don intend to bring a tripod as too packed there. I just want to take a few family pictures and maybe some of the themes there only.

def the 50 f1.4
the 28-135 is way too slow, even with IS.

imho i go for the 28-135. its easier to do family shot with background. and i think you can easily survive with a fill flash + ISO400-800 using widest aperture to get the background exposure.
like you say the place gonna be very crowded, a 50mm prime might restrict you sometimes.

Shooting people in low light, 50f1.4.

Shooting night scene, IS preferred.

Get an external flash if u yet to have one already..

Oh no, seems that the votes/comments are a bit separate. Nevertheless, still listening to all advises before deciding as surely do not want to bring tripod and bag along.

Thanks and keep all the advises coming in.

Ya also want to know. I bought mine last week at Hong Kong and considering to sell it off as my brother going to give me a 50mm 1.8.

Any idea, how much can it fetch? Only used it when trying out in Hong Kong and waiting to use it at Chinatown.
