Posted this on Clickin Moms for a larger crowd, but I'll post here in case any of you can give me some advice.
My DH's grandmother is offering us an amazing opportunity. She is going to fly us to Greece for a 7 day cruise. It will start in Athens, Greece where we can spend the entire day touring. Then we'll cruise to Mykonos (Greece), Ephesus (Turkey), Rhodes (Greece), Irklion (Greece), and Santorini (Greece).
Of course my thoughts were of the landscape photography I could do. My question to you girls is, of my current lens options I have a 30mm 1.4 and 50mm 1.8. I have a VERY CHEAP and crappy canon zoom lens. I think for Christmas I want to see if I can get a better zoom lens so I have more reach when we're vacationing.
I've been seriously looking at the Canon 70-200 f/4L (non IS) USM lens. If I'm going to invest some money, I thought I would go for an L series lens. And since it might possibly be in my price range, I thought I would see if anyone thinks it would be a good choice. I will have my tripod and probably use it often because of the non IS and possibility of low shutter speeds.
Is there another lens anyone can think to recommend ($600 and below) that might be a good fit?
