This is my first time here and I have been reading through some of the threads . Lot of good info and lots of help . My question is this : I will be going to Alaska on a cruise up the inland sea next year sometime. I have a Canon Rebel 300 . I would like to be able to take just 1 lens with me rather than 2 . The 2 I have now are the one that came in the kit and a 70-300 . I have no problem buying a new lens and was thinking about a 28-200 . Wife will have her P&S Canon Power shot also. Looking for advice and suggestions on a good "all purpose" lens. Maybe even a different camera ??
