Camera Lenses for SE Asia

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

Heading to Vietnam & Cambodia later this year and am due for a new camera. (Mine is 7+ years old, was used through college and has been all over the world)

I currently have a Canon Rebel, with a 75-300 lens, 18-55 lens, and a macro lens (the cheap one... can't remember the length)

If possible I'd like to keep the lenses and just get a new base, but have heard some lenses don't transition base-to- base- is this right?

Which base would you recommend for someone who loves photography, but is not well educated with it(I play with settings, but its more luck when something turns out right). Budget I'd say is ~ $2k.

Should I get a wide angle too? People rave about 'fixed lenses' 50mm? What benefits do those have?

Thanks so much!
