Best lens for travel photography (2018)

6945 ratings | 432247 views
📸 My Travel Photography Course - https://goo.gl/2obNBB This video answers a question that I get asked, perhaps more than any other. "What is the best lens for travel photography? For documentary photography?" I’ll give you a very comprehensive answer. I’ll talk about the best lenses for the full frame sensor system as well as the Micro 43 system that I currently use. Of course I want you to have an idea of what kinds of images these recommended best travel photography lenses produce. There will be plenty of photo examples. What about the lens’ usability, weight, discreetness and stuff like that? I’ll mention all that in the video too! 📷 LINKS TO ALL THE GEAR I TALK ABOUT IN THE VIDEO BELOW 24-70mm type lenses and equivalents BHPhoto and Amazon links Recommended for full frame sensor cameras Latest Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 lens: https://bhpho.to/2HE5Np7 | http://amzn.to/2plbzoZ Recommended Sony 24-70mm f/2.8: https://bhpho.to/2FIcJFe | http://amzn.to/2HJ93Qn Recommended Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8: https://bhpho.to/2FFDLx2 | http://amzn.to/2DBinmS Sigma for Canon mount 24-70mm f/2.8 lens: https://bhpho.to/2HHkl7D | http://amzn.to/2phJPld Sigma for Nikon mount 24-70mm f/2.8 24-70mm f/2.8: https://bhpho.to/2FGCGFf | http://amzn.to/2DBBg8Y Recommended for cropped frame sensors Canon 17-55 f/2.8 (for the cropped sensor Canons) https://bhpho.to/2pnspn2 | http://amzn.to/2pkQiMe Panasonic 12-35 f/2.8 lens (Micro 43): https://bhpho.to/2HGxA8i | http://amzn.to/2DCsMys Fujifilm XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR Lens (APSC): https://bhpho.to/2HEsqd1 | http://amzn.to/2FSiqwg Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 Lens (Micro 43) Not quite 24-80 equivalent, but close enough: https://bhpho.to/2pj6w8J | http://amzn.to/2HJ9ev1 30 and 35mm type lenses and equivalents Recommended for cropped sensor cameras Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 ASPH.

Hey all! Of course this video is purely my opinion formed through my experiences. These are the lenses which I think are best. If you have a different idea, if there’s a lens you can’t live without - please do share! On a separate note: Do you like this new format? What do you think of the video being filmed on the road in different locations?
Maxwell Lau (2 months ago)
yeah I do like video being filmed on the road. Thanks for sharing this video and it's really informative!

Hi, great video filmmaking and I loved the continuity you gave to your tone of voice in different locations. Excellent balance in post production about lighting and highlights. I did not find any change of location distracting. I loved the presentation about the pairing with the Canon full frame and the 24-70mm f/2.8 and I would have just add some more details and a more extensive explanation about how an f/2.8 lens could result in an f/5.6 lens. I think your channel attract both professional photographer and enthusiasts. So you might want to go a little more in depth on some simple concepts which are easy for professional photographers to understand and maybe more complicated for less experienced. Hope my positive honest criticism helps. I loved this video and I really like your channel and photography. By the way I’m totally with you when it comes to travel photography: I use most of the times my Sony A7ii with the Sony 24-70mm f/2.8, while on the other hand I have the tendency to travel with the combo of Sony Hx90 and Sony Rx100iii for being less noticed in places where photographers are not seen welcomed and also to avoid damaging expansive equipment. When traveling another camera I always bring with me is a Sony A6000 with an inexpensive 50mm f/1.8 which produces creamy stunning bokeh not even close to the combo I mentioned above. A6000+50mm is a very small camera. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day. Cheers from Europe

Hi Mitchellk First of all thank you for sharing very useful knowladge about photography and gears to use. I have one issue, problem that I face very often and I want to know your vision how to solve it. The problem is that skies are always blown out im my photoes. Is this problem of low dynamic range of my camera, or should I use some equipment/filters? How did you overcome this problem in your photoes?
mitchellkphotos (2 days ago)
You can avoid it with any camera by exposing properly for the situation that you have. There are a few nuances here that I don't know, but in general, even with the crappiest camera you can expose the sky well, unless you're in high contrast situations. High contrast - that's another matter that would require some post-processing.

I was able to afford the Canon 24-105mm f/4.0 L, and I'm very happy with it. I've been shooting Canon since 1978 (I'm an old man). I would REALLY like to be able to switch to Sony, hopefully some day before I die. What Sony has done for photography is phenomenal!

wow.. I also shoot with the lumix GX80 and a similar lens (the 20mm 1.7) and you have really proven to me, that it's not the camera but the photographer who creates a great image! I'm really feeling the lust for new gear lately, but your breathtaking images are really motivating to save that money and keep my current setup!
Teo Crawford (9 days ago)
+mitchellkphotos oh yes, I've heared a lot of negative feedback on it's autofocus and it truly isn't very fast but it enough for my needs :)
mitchellkphotos (9 days ago)
The one you have is different, from what I've heard, the autofocus on it is not great, but – for sure, you can do almost all you need with the gear you have. 🙂

Hi Mitchell Did you have any issues while travelling with the fact that the GX80 is not weather sealed ? I’m travelling often carrying my Ricoh grii the but only concern all the time is about the weather sealed Love the body of the GX80 but the lack of weather sealed body is what stop me to buying it Any advice will be helpful Love what you doing and love your pictures Take care

DECKARD263354BR (20 days ago)
Thanks Mitchell for this video , another example of it's not always about the gear but your skill in taking photos and wow do you take amazing photos !! I have a canon 5dsr with 16-35 and 100mm macro for landscapes and macros , I love the resolution for cropping and big enlargements but was tinkering with the idea of a 24-70 2.8 lense for travel but this set up will be close to 2kgs !!!! My other idea was to go a fuji setup xt20 / xt2 and 18-55 and some primes for travel , do you have any thoughts on a set up like this for a travel kit or should i go the 24-70 , i guess 50mp is not needed for travel most of the time except for the occasional landscape, thanks so much for your videos !!
gghostrrider (23 days ago)
I have watched several videos about beginner photography and photography in general. This is the first time I have heard anyone say that the crop factor of APSC affects aperture, thank you for helping me see why I can’t get the super shallow depth of field in portraits.
mitchellkphotos (23 days ago)
You can get very shallow depth of field, but with specific lenses.
William D'Alexander (27 days ago)
I bought a nikon d3400 with both the 18-55 and 70-300 lenses...... I'm going on an Alaskan cruise and also booked a private whale watching tour once i get there....... are my lenses sufficient,, or should i buy a wide angle lense with good distance shooting capability?? Please help
Sonny Brown (28 days ago)
Man, I love your photography, and really appreciate the video. I really want to encourage you to try to go back to the full frame camera. I think we've gotten swept away with the idea of having a discreet camera system and want to believe that that's all we need, but I'm of the mind that the quality just isn't there. Everything from apsc and below just full short. Even the best of them are great to look at for the moment but never leave you with that sense of wonder and emotion. There really is something about the larger sensor and the quality that (particularly Canon) put into it. It's not about the numbers, it's the results. There's just so much more there. Take care, man, and thank you for the insightful video.
mitchellkphotos (28 days ago)
Disagreed totally, but appreciate your comment. And... who says I am not sometimes shooting full frame now? 😜 DEFINITELY not a Canon though! 😳I mean I don't care what camera it is, but they have nothing exciting now.

How much affect the missing image stabilization
Gary Manning (29 days ago)
Superb inspirational photography. After over 50 years of photography using nearly all formats up to 5x7. I now use a small Fuji body with the 16mm f1.4 for 90% of my pics. However I will buy the new 16mm f2.8 when it comes out for size and reducing weight. Superbly easy to crop with a 24 mp sensor so it can be used for internal wide shots to Astro photography and portraiture it is as good as a 24-70 in one package. Love your site and have just subscribed

very well explained - thank you. I recentlt purchased the Sony A6500 with SIgma 30mm lens and think its great. the sigma is super sharp also. I still want a zoom lens but seems there isnt much under £1k and nothing under f4 so not ideal

I have to tell you that i in love with your work, your lifestyle and your way of be (humble,smart and warm guy) What do you think about sony a7 brand? Are not reliable cameras for profesional travel work? They are the lightest full-frames in the market (lighter than the panasonic ones!). ¡Un saludo, te deseo lo mejor! ^.^
mitchellkphotos (1 month ago)
I've only used it on a few shoots and mostly been experimenting photographing my daughter. She's a challenging subject. Always moving, running. Generally if the camera can deal with her... it can deal with almost anything. 🙂
Kaudillo Orco (1 month ago)
WoW, I have that camera too! :D did you use it in some moment upong your journeys or want to try it in the future ones?

Thanks. I don't think they are lighter than Panasonic, but I got a Sony a7III. Reliable so far. Amazing camera. 🙂
Michael Kubler (1 month ago)
Great video. Thank you! I've been a prime lens user for a while as well. Using a Canon 7D and 600D user I use my beloved 28mm f1.8 which is my fav lens although I use my 70-200mm f2.8 which is great for capturing things from afar.

At 8:11 you talk about sensor size affecting depth of field; I didn't think this was possible. My understanding on DoF and Aperture sizes comes from this lecture: https://youtu.be/d_sJFslHQsg?t=10m22s

Mitchell, Iike so many others I am in love with your photography and appreciate your insights. I'm an amateur newbie and recently purchased a used Panasonic G85 from a friend to take with me on a trek and medical service trip in Nepal. I recently learned that we have a pretty strict weight restriction due to a flight into a small airport. I just purchased a Panasonic point and shoot ZS100 so that I wouldn't have to carry an extra lens due to its bulkiness and weight. After seeing your you tube I'm wondering if I would have been better off just buying F1.7 15mm lens? I"m wondering what the overall weight is with the camera and lens?
Leo van Lierop (1 month ago)
Maybe I should have watched this video more sooner, as I came to the same conclusion. I have a whole stack of M43 lenses and I'm in to a project to document my village. 12mm is just too wide as the end of the street is too far away. The 20mm is a bit narrow, and I don't like the rendering. So I too settled on the 15mm and will shoot them all at F1.7 to have little depth of field.
Debajyoti Biswas (1 month ago)
Guy! Your presentation is fantastic. Pictures are excellent. I enjoyed your video. If I carry two lenses for street photography my first choice will be 30mm (below f2.8) prime and second choice will be small zoom lens. Your 24-70 is a good lens, indeed. Thanx

Brent O'Dell (2 months ago)
I currently shoot mostly wildlife and nature with a Nikon D500, but I've been thinking about getting a Panasonic G9 to save some weight. In particular, i rented the Nikon 200-500mm F/5.6 for a trip to the mountains, and LOVE the shots I got. The downside is that it's HUGE. With the D500, the total kit is over 3kg, while the G9 with a 100-400mm(which gives a little better zoom range) is about 1.5kg. Any thoughts on the G9?
Brent O'Dell (2 months ago)
mitchellkphotos no worries, thanks. I've heard mixed reviews, so I will have to keep an eye out for more reviews.
mitchellkphotos (2 months ago)
No, sorry :(
Brent O'Dell (2 months ago)
Thanks for the reply! Any experience with the 100-300? My longest lens currently is 400(600 with the D500), so the 100-300 would get me to that same reach.
mitchellkphotos (2 months ago)
It's a great stills camera, as long as you don't shoot over about ISO 2500. I've got the lens you're talking about. I'd actually probably recommend the 45-200 (90-400) equivalent. The lens you mention has not been working as good in regards to autofocus. Tried photographing eagles with it and never really managed, whether as I did with the 95-200.
라사 (2 months ago)
Thanks for the review. I understand you don't use sony but I would like to know your opinion on traveling: Would you recommend sony zeiss 24-70mm f4 426g *or* 28-75 Tamron f2.8 510g? Appreciate anyone's reply!

Great explains !! I didn't knew that apperture stick with the same crop's rules. I thought that 2.8 in FF it's same in micro 4/3. Nobody mention about that which is very important. I've using a GX80 and I'm very satisfy of this camera typically with lumix 14-45 but I bought 25mm 1.7 whit is very nice and 45-175 for hunting animals :) and sometimes to zooming something which is too far.
Krzysztof Szuprytowski (2 months ago)
mitchellkphotos for me, very important to know before buying lenses. Thanks once again and I hope you're satisfy of your GX80 as I am 😊

At the outset, loved the format of the video split up over different locations. Much better than having to sit through an indoor location in a cramped makeshift video studio. Equally endearing was the exhaustive, yet to-the-point narrative that kept the listener engrossed for the entire duration. Next up, just loved your photographs, especially when you went candid with the smaller cameras. And finally, fantastic eye for people/ situational photography. Have subscribed, so do keep the videos coming. Thanks :)

Hello Mitchell, I love your videos on travel photography. Myself with my student schedule, I traveled only to Montego Bay in Jamaica. It was wonderful! Plus, in my spare time I'm a photographer. Your video help me a lot about how to choose my lens.

Excellent video. I understand where you are coming from but, I liked the early images (shot with the full frame camera and 24-70mm lens) best. If I could choose one focal range (that is already out there for a full frame camera), I'd pick the 28-135mm. That said, however, the overall quality of that specific Canon lens is not quite up to my standards. I travel with two Canon crop cameras (7D and 7D2) with the 17-55mm f/2.8 IS and the 70-200mm f/4L IS lenses mounted. I also will often take a 12-24mm f/4 Tokina ATX as a wide angle lens and as a potential backup to the 17-55mm if that lens should ever fail. I don't worry about the 70-200mm failing because it is built like a tank. I was recently given an older Tokina 28-70mm ATX Pro (the one based on the Angenieux 28-70mm f/2.6 design) and I really like it both for my full frame camera and my crop cameras. It is not QUITE as sharp as the 24-70mm f/2.8L Canon but comes quite close to the 28-70mm f/2.8 Canon lens. It is a bit smaller and less conspicuous than the L lenses and it has a certain glow about the images that I really like...

My money would be on the Fuji system...for the last couple of years, all the fuji system choices are great choices. The x100f is the best(highest quality, smallish, inconspicuous, yet most versatile, powerful and simple) travel camera considering everything except price(1000.00)....even though there are other possibilities to choose from for different purposes.

hooked4lifeca (3 months ago)
As a Panasonic ambassador, I feel that you left out one of the best options for traveling really light and for blending in - the LX100. It has a 24mm to 75mm equivalent lens, but it doesn't quite use the full four thirds sensor, as it has that funky image format manual switch. So that's the downside, but the upside is that it is fully controllable on manual using its classic aperture ring/shutter speed dial arrangement plus it's tiny. The lens is also fairly fast at f1.7 to f2.8. It's my travel camera of choice. I also have an X100T, but when I'm just doing the tourist thing, it's the LX100 that is around my neck.

Yeh, that's the one thing that was always present. Not necessarily the actual threat, but the thought of a threat because everyone was talking about it. I think it's very different for someone who lives in a place and a traveler though. Less chances mathematically of meeting the wrong people, but even so... everyone always talks about "no dar papaya!" I've come to hate that phrase. :) Regardless though, I love Colombia. Some of my favourite people! Real, genuine. Love em.

I was born a raised there. At the age of 16, I was almost stabbed for a pair of shoes. Yes, thieves are a big issue but especially in the big cities like Bogota, Cali, and Medellin. Now, Boyaca is different. Most people are farmers and have great respect and hospitality.

I see that I’m a month behind on this video, but how do you get comfortable shooting with a wide lens like the 15mm? I got the Olympus 17mm because I wanted the smaller lens and camera body combo you talk about, because even where I live in the states people look at you funny just because you have a bigger camera. I love the lens, but never shooting so wide before, I’m starting to crop heavy just so I don’t feel like I’m in people’s personal space. With your photos how do you get close and personal and not get questioned by people? Like that one town that wanted to see your photos just because they had a bad reputation one time. Love your videos and your work, very inspirational and very beneficial.

mitchellkphotos I am subscribed and notifications are turned on. I’m so glad I’ve come across your videos, they are so much more interacting than other videos. I will be sharing your videos a bunch with my photography club. There isn’t many of us, but the passion is there. Thank you, and I can’t wait for the next one.

A loaded question there. I'll answer it in part in my next video on people photography. Whenever I finish editing it....

Hi Mitchell, I just watched this video of yours and I liked it. I am planning to travel various parts in Europe in the next few months. What camera and lens would you recommend for me to capture all the wonderful mountains, lakes etc.... All sceneries which Europe has to offer. I am happy to carry two different lenses if needed... Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi, I was considering getting a Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 on my Canon 77D, seems to be quite equivalent of the ones you linked in the description. Do you know this sense, and in that case what you think about it ? Thanks, and just saying, your pictures are incredibles ! So inspiring !
Justine Gorin-Bault (4 months ago)
Actually he's lighter than the canon one, and really more cheaper too! There is the Tamron I'm hesitating with, I guess I'll make up my mind comparing holding them.
mitchellkphotos (4 months ago)
Great in the sense that you can do with just this one lens. Not so great in the sense that it's not super light. Overall - should serve you well though.
Justine Gorin-Bault (4 months ago)
Ok, well I hope it will be great for travelling. Thank you for answering so fast.
mitchellkphotos (4 months ago)
Justine, sorry I don't have any personal experience with the lens, but going of the specs it should be a flexible, multi purpose lens.

SORRY BUT... why don't you use a FF mirrorless like Sony A with 35mm 2.8? The FF will be much better than m43. And Zeiss 35mm 2.8 is very good. Or even better, RX1 with the non replaceable 35mm 2.0!
mitchellkphotos (4 months ago)
Because it's not better. There's more than glass to a camera. It's the usability. Just came back after using a Sony camera and glass and it's just not as good for stills. I want it to be as good, but Panasonic in my opinion is far ahead (for stills).

Hi Mitchell, what lens do you recommend for a beginner shooting with the Sony A6000 for travel (people and landscapes). Thank you in advance for your answer :)

mitchelkphotos: How did you get the aerial shots? Friend? Hire? Drone? Really useful info and thanks for the links. I've found the camera and the lens matter less than the eye behind them...and you've got the eye.
mitchellkphotos (4 months ago)
Drone. And why hire? They are relatively cheap. The parts where I was driving in the intro - a friend filmed those.

What about the Sony DSC RX1RII? 42 Mpx, a 35 fixed prime lens and a very small body. It's almost invisible!
mitchellkphotos (4 months ago)
yep, why not? :)
