    Hi, I would just like to ask thoughs of you that photograph landscape/water if when you go out for the day (or 2) what lenses you would use.
    I have a Canon Rebel & D10.
    Thanks.

    I take all my lenses everytime I go anywhere. You never know what you'll see. I have a 17-35mm, 50mm, and 70-200.

    I take all the lenses I can afford. That would be a 28-200mm 3.5/5.6 then:(

    I have a backback and carry all my lenses just in case I need one. I shoot mainly portraits though, so I have a 50mm, 35-70, 70-200, 100 macro and a 20mm.

    If money was no object, I'd pick up a fast "L" telephoto or zoom lens (100-400? 200 2.8 L?) and an ultrawide prime (somewhere between 17 and 20mm) and a 28-70ish L zoom. But money is an object. :)

    If I'm pressed for space I carry my normal 50mm on the camera, 24mm wide angle and a 28mm PC lens.

    I take all 8 lenses and two bodies. I have an extra bag that I always leave in the car. Once I get to where I want to go I use the smaller bag for the stuff I think I will need. I usually can figure out what I will need at a particular location, but I may visit several locations in a day. Its nice to have everything thats only a short walk to the car away, but I don't want to or need to carry everything everywhere.

    I know its common for someone to decide they will take a shot in a certain way at a location and then noptice somethnig else and think i wish i bought my tele lense. Carry as much as you can but like was said before a nice zoom lense and wide angle would be a good choice if you really cant carry much

    I take them all, I have 3 Canon lenses covering a range of 18-300mm for my 20D and Rebel, and they all sit happily in my camera rucksack with room to spare.. that way i'm sure to have the right lense should something unexpected pop up. I also carry a Hoya circular polariser, 2 Hoya UV filters, and an Orange filter for B&W.

    If space was my main problem, rather than money, i'd be soooo happy:D
