Viv, obviously the lightest combination would be the 28 and the 50. If only
one, then the 50 would be the best choice. For film, that's usually a
personal choice, but I think that Kodak's E100VS (ektachrome 100 VS) would be
good choice in the fairly bland landscapes of the canyon, and since there's
probably plenty of light. For lower light photography, I think the new Kodak
Supra 400 would be a good choice. The Supra 100 is really good also. Bring a
polarizer for the 50mm.
Be Seeing You.
