Hi all,
I'm going down to Canberra in a couple of weeks where there is a major Impressionist Exhibition.Here in Oz its a great opportunity to see masterpeices without having to fly to Paris  :-))
My question: How to take the best shots ? I'm guessing flash is a no no ....although I'm not certain of that. I would probably want shots of the paintings as well as some with my kids standing next to them...you get the idea.
I have a Canon 500D and 3 Canon lenses:
18 - 200mm f 3.5-5.6
50mm prime f1.8
10-22mm f3.5-4.5
Which of these would work the best if I only wanted to carry one in ?
If the answer is 'none' :-))  fair enough but what should I be looking to get - the lenses I've been looking for an excuse to buy are:
1. Sigma 30mm f1.4
2. Canon 17-55 f2.8
3. Canon 100mm f2 or 100mm f2.8 macro

My gut feeling is to use my existing 50mm for most shots and carry the 10-22 in my pocket for a couple of shots of the gallery. I don't know if 50mm on my 1.6 crop is going to be 'right' though Huh Im saving a few $$ by not having to fly to Paris :-)) so SWMBO might let me buy a new lens.
Thanks for your opinions !!

Check with the gallery before you walk in the door. Most do not allow any type of photography.

Your best bet will be to simply buy the catalog.
