I’m still adjusting to my DSLR. One reason why I put off the purchase for so long was my thinking: “I don’t want to have to carry this big thing around, my point-and-shoot fits in my pocket!” (you have to say it to yourself in a very whiny tone to get the full effect).
When I went to Australia, it was mostly a business trip, so I left the telephoto lens at home. All of these pictures were taken with my 50mm fixed focal length lens (yes, I was really that close up to the koala). I found myself missing the telephoto at times.
What do you pack when you travel? What if it’s just for a short trip? I’m thinking of taking my 50mm lens and the telephoto next time and see how I like having them both.
I’d love to hear your suggestions!
Note: the pic above is of my kit lens. The 50mm lens is much smaller, which is part of the reason why I like using it.
