I'd use a 35/1.4 or a 50/1.4, most probably the 35. I like the angle of view better than the 50. However if I want to travel really really light it would be the 50/1.8.

If a porter is provided and someone is paying, I wouldn't mind the 200/1.8L or the 1200/5.6L. Great stuff !

not only the view angle or focal length, I always take into consideration the closest focusing distance of a lens...so that I can shoot close-up pic. So, faster lens not necessary good...have to take into consideration the CFD.

That's true, for CFD wise, me thinks the 28mm f/2.8 can go down to 20cm so that's really close :cool:

to be clear, it is the Nikon AIS 28mm f2.8. Having the closest focus distance in Nikkor. :)
