I recently booked a three week trip to Greece. We will be there from Aug 27th to Sep 16th. The only places I know we are going to are Santorini (3 days) and Crete (10 days). Can hardly wait! I've always been a light traveler and that includes my camera gear as well. In 2010, I went to Panama with a Panasonic GF1 and the 20mm f1.7 pancake. And in 2012, I went to Morocco with the NEX 5N and CZ 24mm. There were moments when I wished I had something wider or longer. But those moments were few and far between. My camera kit is now the A7 and the 55mm. When I traveled in the past, it has been with wide to wide-standard angle lenses. This time, I have with me a lens that is slightly longer than a traditional standard lens. I'm wondering whether the 55mm will give me enough versatility as my only lens as I travel. There are few 28-70mm kit zooms available on Craigslist locally. I am intrigued because I can get one for 250-300 range and I keep reading about how it's a good performer for the price. I can't remember the last time I used a zoom but it might come in handy. If you look at my sets, especially the one from Morocco, I didn't have many shots using the 24mm wide open. Most photos were taken with a small aperture. So the speed of the kit zoom may not be an issue. If you have any thoughts on this, I'd love to hear them. Better yet, if you have photos to go along with your thoughts, please post them! I've been browsing Flickr.
