    Trip to Scotland an Iceland, Lenses?!

    hello my friends, i plan this year trips to iceland an scotland.
    actually i use only the 80mm planar cfi on my hasselblad 501cm.

    for landscape photography like kenna, hoflehner does:
    would you go for the 180mm or the 250mm?
    for wide angle the 50mm or the 60mm?

    thx michael

    I have a Bronica 6x6 and use the 50mm and 150mm lenses. I use them both for landscape work here in Scotland. I don't have the 80mm, but my Rolleicord has a 75mm which I find to be of less use for landscape shots. I hope you enjoy your trip. Alex

    hoflehner uses a digital back so make sure you pick up one of those as well.

    thx, for your reply.
    actually i will also take my 5dii with me... :-)

    my question targets more (hope this is the correct spelling :-) ) on the quality and usability of those lenses.

    Fortunately all the Hasselblad lenses are great. I take a 50, 80, 150 and 250mm lenses when I travel. The 250 could be left behind, but you should have a 50 and 150 for sure.

    Depending on where and how I am to travel and what I expect to photograph determines the equipment I will bring. For Iceland and Scotland I would bring my 50FLE, 150, 2x and a couple of extension tubes along with two bodies, a light meter, some filters and a tripod. Don't forget plenty of film.

    I, too, am going to Iceland in September. Another local photographer who has been there suggested that I would want the widest lens I could take. I am going to be shooting 35mm for the most part (But will also have a 645 Fuji with a fixed 60mm.) I have a 28mm, which is approximately equivalent to your 50mm for the Hassie. I'm still undecided about getting either a 24mm or a 20mm, both of which are available for my Minolta AF. But, I digress ...

    More to the point, I also shoot an RB67 (NOT going to Iceland due to weight!) For the RB, I have both the 55mm and the 65mm. If I had to choose only one of the two, my personal choice would be to take the 55mm, if for no other reason than it is farther from the "normal" 90mm.

    You should check out the work of Thomas Joshua Cooper, if you are not already familiar with him. He has made landscape images in both Scotland and Iceland. His pictures are black and white landscapes made, I believe, with large format cameras. Alex
