Allright M&A. I'm visiting my sister in germany during the march break and we will be visiting a TON of place (We are in Hanover, but will surely take the train everywhere we can) Things is, I went from my little nikon D40 to a Nikon D80, and all I have for lenses right now is a 35 f1.8, and a 18-55mm which might get sold soon but not for much.
I THINK I should had another to my lens quiver. because having simply a 35mm when visiting country might not be the best. I wanna have something I can play with have fun and keep for later on also.
So first, my ideas were to save up and buy a Tokina 11-16mm, but appart from video comment, i've never heard anything about them photo wise, and I don't know if it's the best idea to bring a wide-angle when shooting scenery and building and stuff.
Second, Borrow my dads 18-135 f/3.6 or something. Problem with that lens is stability, it was the kit lens that came with his D80 and there is no VR and I don't really like the idea of having this huge bulk of lens in my backpack.
Also I will be traveling a lot and I'll need to haul around my camera plus some clothes, so what do you recommend that won't be hard on the body during long days of walking.
Tl;Dr: Traveling to Germany, Need help choosing a lens, debating on Tokina 11-16mm or my dads 18-135 f3.6 or something for photo. Need a backpack also for long walking days and train ride.
