I'm making my way to Israel later this summer, and want a general purpose lens. My only lens is a 24-105, which after a day of hiking in 40+ degree weather... well I might as well be carrying a brick.
What I need to do is play around with the lens I have now at the different focal lengths, but it's difficult to be satisfied when I have so many options in between. I remember the first time I used a fixed lens on my Pentax; at first I wanted to break it, but after a while it all became natural. Anywise, enough rambling. I don't intend to use this lens for portraits, mainly general shooting, and low light (prime lens speed is why I have leaned away from G11).
I think I've got what I need, but please chime in if you have something to add. All is well appreciated!
