Re: Which lens is best to shoot horseshoe bend?

When you need the lens once... “rent” it.

 

When you need the lens many times... “buy” it.

 

Just rent the lens you want for the days you need it.  Check LensRentals, BorrowLenses, and I think even B&H and possibly Adorama have a rental dept.  My local in-town camera store has a rental section (must be a real camera store... not a big box store that happens to sell cameras alongside the computers, TVs, and major appliances.)

"I have 24-70 MK2, and 70-200 MK2."  Add the ef 16-35mm f2.8L and you have it made in the shade with lemonade.  If the f2.8 version is too costly at this time by all means do as Bob suggests, get the f4.

A lot less stuff for 2018 but still a lot of Canon stuff. Along with, a lot of other stuff.

" I was thinking of using the 24-70 and take paranomic shots, and stitch them together."

 

It works and work well.  Just remember to turn your camera to portrait position.

 

Here is a seven shot pano of the stock yards in Dodge City, Kansas.

It was done with the ef 24-70mm f2.8L on a 1D Mk IV.

Yes, stitching panos works well—IF you can get into the right position to frame the shots. I had to “spray and pray” because I couldn’t get close enough to the edge to frame properly. That’s why a wide angle lens helps.

If you’re going to be shooting in canyons (and possibly encountering lots of dust) I’d buy a lens. It’ll do more than just cover the scene.
