    @unixfairy:  you are overthinking this, but on your crop sensor you are going to want something that goes to around 10mm (on the wide end) for landscapes).

    @unixfairy:  14mm on your camera is about as wide as a 24mm is on a full frame.  The 10-24 on a crop is about equal to the 16-35 or 14-24 on a full frame.  These are great focal lengths for landscapes.

    On a vacation you ideally want to be as light as possible.  If I’m on vacation I might take just the 35mm f/1.4G, which is a similar focal length to the 24mm on a full frame.  If you’re not used to shooting primes it’s a lot more work, but in general I think my compositions are always way better when I have to move into the best position and really think about my framing.

    @unixfairy:  

    I say get the 14-24, but I’m big on wide angles. I bought the 14mm a couple of years ago and almost wish I got the 14-24 because I’ve heard it’s sharper. The colors come out amazing on mine, so I’m assuming they do on the 14-24 as well.
