Should I keep Canon 15-85 ?
ENJOY your trip and do not forget to show us some pictures!

Kind regards,

Trip started with a small incident, I forgot my polarizer in the plane, but I can live without it 😊
It is raining and overcast over Istanbul, time for a daymare: Going with wife to the souk and malls... When you pay for a dress the price of the best lenses....
I did everything to have a lightweight camera bag, and travel light.

Then.... wife buys 2 kilos of cosmetics and beauty products and put them in your travel bag....

Your wife must have been most appreciative of you being so kind to remember allowing for space for her buying spree before going on this trip, toni-a Smile.


Kindest regards, Wim Wink

Gear: Canon EOS R with 3 primes and 2 zooms, 4 EF-R adapters, Canon EOS 5 (analog), 9 Canon EF primes, a lone Canon EF zoom, 2 extenders, 2 converters, tubes; Olympus OM-D 1 Mk II & Pen F with 12 primes, 6 zooms, and 3 Metabones EF-MFT adapters ....
Last day of my trip.

Didn't take many pictures but I met Obican and we did a great tour of photography shops.

As for the gear not at any instant I didn't have the lens I needed.

17-55f2.8 was the main lens and did an amazing job, 10-18 although slow was awesome for street photography. 8mm fisheye is a must have for architecture and interiors IMHO it was great for shooting ceilings in Topkapi palace.

70-300 unexpectedly very useful for birds even in flight and for the ships on the Bosphorus.

Lenses of little or no use: EFs 18-55 and 50mm f1.4 eclipsed by the versatility of 17-55 I didn't take the risk of traveling with a lens freshly out of repairs I brought them just in case 17-55 fails, it didn't.
