i haven't got my wide angle lens with me on my travels. i'm returning home in about a month for a week and i'm debating whether i should bring it back out with me when i return. on the downside, there are insurance implications - in that it'll cost quite a lot to insure. it is a fairly pricey lens though and it would represent both a significant loss and, for a potential thief, a good steal. plus it will be something else in terms of bulk and weight that i'll have to carry around with me. on the flipside there are very obvious benefits, and i've already encountered quite a few situations where i've regretted not having it. my workaround here was to zoom my telephoto lens into the back of a pair of binoculars that were hanging at the top of an observation tower in parque do caracol. i suspect that i won't be fortunate enough to have this option at most of the wide vistas i encounter.
