    going to mexico for 10 days ... mainly sitting by the pool and eating/drinking, but i suppose we might venture out for a tour of some sort (mayan ruins, most likely).

    would you bring a 70-200 with you? I'm bringing my 10-22 and 24-70 - figured that would be enough. :dunno:

    i'm getting married down there & am giving my camera to a buddy, so maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea for some extra reach. hmm

    i was going to say you'd probably be fine w/ out it, but then you mentioned getting married and shooting the wedding, and that makes me think you should bring it.

    yeah, i kinda re-thought my idea as i was typing. it might be nice to have my buddy use the 70-200, but then again, the ceremony is only going to be a few minutes long at best, and there's only ~14 people going. So, i'm kinda thinking the 24-70 might be long enough.

    hmm

    then there's the possibility of everything getting jacked out of our hotel room, i suppose.

    I'd skip it. Seems too heavy to lug around.

    18-200 :love:

    nigga i just returned form living in the yucatan for a while. I really wish I woulda brought a zoom.

    At the ruins, however, I was fine with my 17-40, but in some of the towns a zoom woulda been cool.

    Make sure to check out uxmal if you are looking at ruins, its in my opinion the best one around there, and not crowded like chichen, chichen is a fucking circus....

    Also go spend a few nights in Merida :coold:

    Take it just in case. It's really not that heavy or bulky to throw in your bag.

    I just got back from greece I wish I had the 70-200 2.8 for some occasions but then again I didn't feel like carrying it around. I would probably take it maybe not carry it everywhere but if you know you'll be taking a day trip bring it that day.
