Have plans to visit Hokkaido this oct.

Anyone been there?

I was thinking of brining my 17-85mm + 50-200mm.would my 17-85mm be enough or both? Or any other recommendations?

I am more toward portrait n landscape.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Yup, been there before, several times, with my D70s, D5000, and 18-200mm, and have capture countless landscape shots, you won't regret it with the scenery there.

Been there 4 years ago. I think any kit lens will do. U current setup is ok, bring both.
Good if u got another 50 f1.8 for low light.

Or rent 'L' lens below for better image quality.

Efs 17-55 f2.8 for general walk about.
Efs 10-20 for firework and landscape
Ef 24L - about 35mm for your crop.
This f1.4 to take nice bokeh and no flash shots.

Generally 17-85 is good.

For my last year trip, most of my shots are with:
70-300mm-20%
28-75mm-50%
18mm-25%
16mm FE-5%

You can consider ultra wide angle to bring along in this case.

You tried this method before ? How to composite nice scenery into the shoots so near ? You can prevent camera shake ? Any photos to show???

With the help of an articulated screen cam and PS to stamp away that left hand;)

Flip the articulated screen so it's facing forward. In normal daylight conditions handshake is not a problem.

I can't even imagine what will become of me if I were to use UWA and cam-whore a self-portrait with my significant other ;)
Anyway I can't do it since my camera has no articulating screen, so my life is safe... :angel:

I am using ef 20mm f2.8 mounted on 5dmk2. Turn it around with the small prime lens facing myself and my 2 sons, holding the cam body with my left hand, press the shutter with my big thumb ! I also have the canon handgrip which make it easy.
