Thanks in advance to all!
1st trip abroad coming up (Paris).
Canon Mark lll 5D

My go to lens is Canon's 70-200 2.8 which I figure will serve me well there as it always does.
Thinking of indoors (museums, etc)----would appreciate advice on a second lens to carry with me for low lights. Canon 85 1.2?
Cost not a concern so open to all options.
Thanks again!

Cost not a concern, lucky you.

When I am traveling I want the best range, quality and smallest size that I can get a good balance. Any 85 will be fierce restrictive indoor. Are you bringing your 70-200?

I'd go a 24-105 f4, but many need the f2.8 so some version of the 24-70. The 24-105 is more flexible though and I reckon with that I'd leave all else at home

I agree, one of the 24-70 zooms should work fine for indoors
But for traveling and museums I use a pocket-size mirrorless and pancake lens

Well if cost is not a concern finish out the trifecta. I have it, I love it.
16-35mm f2.8 II & the 24-70 f2.8 II. The newer mkII versions of all three are as good as it gets at this point.
