I plan to join tour to visit San Francisco next month, I will bring my 5D and a Sigma 18-200mm, but I also want to carry one or two more lenses if possible, which of the following should I choose to carry with and why:

Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC

Minolta 28-75mm F2.8

Minolta 75-300mm F4.5-5.6

Sigma 30mm F1.4

Sigma 50mm F2.8 EX DG Macro

Sigma 105mm F2.8D EX DG Macro

Any advice would be appreciated.

It depends entirely on what you'll be shooting. For tours, the 18-200 will probably be all you'll need.

Good for the ocassional indoor, low light shot that the 18-200 won't do well.

Might be good if you want to zoom in on Alcatraz Island or ships in the bay. (I think there are still Aircraft Carriers in SF Bay.)

Might be good for small group shots indoors, which are common on tours.

Might be good for special purposes, but on a tour, I don't thinkyou'll have much opportunity to use them. It depends on how you like to use them.

I was thinking either the 30 or 50 if you want that faster lense for any thing low light. Usually on trips I just take the 18-200 unless there is something special I'm after.
