I have sony nex camera with kit lens 18-55 mm 2.8 Sigma lens plus 30 mm and 19mm

Wonder to trek for two weeks with the kit, or both? (It's not much extra weight, but I'm really trying not to reach for 10 pounds, including water, food, camera with Kit weighing about 600 גר׳)

30 in my opinion irrelevant when slammed.

Who knows, the kit lens is considered quite successful, even quite nice in the middle range ~ 25 mm, and ends with a closed key (f8 +), 19 in favor shutter open.

Now most of my picture, but occasionally need in life a little zoom, but I'm not one of those that replace lenses frequently.

Your opinion?

Neve. The last option is of course to save another ~ 600 grams and with iPhone's camera. :-)

30. I was left at home.

Are you going to shoot a lot of tricky lighting (sunrise/sunset, night etc)?

Most of the pictures I take are on the edge of the range, so that I would choose.

However, I understand what you're saying about the need for Zoom (light krophim provide you).

What is the difference in weight between the 19th?

19 weighs 140 grams (+ Holster case not considered taking 2 lenses)
The kit weighs 194 g.

Krophim- I'm usually not an image editor, but I guess what can somehow make some 19th Krupp.

Just wondering what other photographers, I actually almost a year didn't make:) camera The last trip I took just the Kit (the kit again, not bad, but I was thinking of trying something new, or get advice from someone who has already experienced similar dilemmas)

It depends if you are a photographer as part of the trip (a fixed lens, so you take it with the zoom)
Or travel as part of a photograph (and in this case I'd take another lens)
:)
600 g it's not much of an animal is a camera with two lenses.
Spend.

Correct setting.

I too hesitated quite a bit and finally decided to go for a long walk with 2 lenses. I'm not a professional photographer so the results justified the weight and awkwardness (trying to learn ... mistakes).


If you really think you zoom thing (maybe photography of animals), take both.
However I would not give up the Kit.
