Hi folks,

will be going to Taipei in May. Which lenses should I bring? Currently I'm thinking of my 12-24, 50 and 24-120 (all Nikon). I guess there is no need for the 80-200.

Any good shooting locations (besides 101)?

Well, if it's architecture, you can try the new Taipei Arena at the intersection of Nanking East and Dunhua North Road or the Miramar Ferris Wheel in Neihu. The best view of 101 is actually from Elephant Hill (have to walk quite a bit).

Ask yourself what is your sole purpose of this trip. Generally speaking, 12-24 is wide enough for landscape. 50 is good for walkabout. 80-200? Heavy lah.... maybe not unless you wish to capture and do a "Birds of Taipei" series. Sorry, my cold joke. Ignore...hehe...

Just my 2-cent. ;)
