    A friend of mine asked me to take a helicopter ride over some properties he owns to take some photos of the area.. we will be about 1000-1500 ft above the locations and he wants to cover about a 1-3 mile radius or so... what lens or lenses would you suggest?
    Thanks in advance..

    Read the online photographer articles about actual photography by ctein for some quick info.

    Are there any particular objectives for your photos? That would help with the suggestions.

    If you need wide angle then your best bet is either 7-14 or 9-18 if you can live with 12mm I would choose the 12-35 or 12-30 lenses along with either the 100-300 or 75-300.
