    Sup guys
    I will be living in the Yucatan for 3 months starting in January :bowdown:

    I want to get some good glass for the trip so I can remember it :cool:

    I'm gonna be hiking in jungles and exploring ruins and all that cool shit, so its relaly important for me to get some good pics, this is once in a life time and ive been saving my $ and I'm willing to shell out a bit.

    so ive been looking at this guys 75-200L as a possibly candidate for my zoom, but what about a wider lens? What are your reccomendations.

    right now i rock my kit lens, thrify 50, and the biggest piece of shit of all time, the 75-300f12923 (i got it free)

    BTW my body is a 20d.

    canon 10-22, tokina 12-24 are solid wide angles.

    10-22 would make a lot of sense. You should also get a very fast lens for low light shots. The thrifty 50, sigma 30mm, etc.
