I am taking a trip to New York city next week. I would be visiting the usual tourist places - Statue of Liberty, Top of the Rock, One World Observatory, Brooklyn Bridge etc. I am also planning to take the hop on hop off bus and ferry tours. I am also taking a one day tour from NYC to Washington DC where we are visiting the Washington monument, Lincoln Memorial and White House.
I currently own the Nikon D7100 with 18-140mm kit lens and 35mm 1.8 DX prime lens.
Since I will be walking around the city the whole day, I want to carry only the 35mm prime which is a 50mm equivalent on full frame. Is this a good idea, or should I take my zoom lens?
I am not a pro. I don't expect to take stunning wide angle shots. Will my 35mm DX be able to reasonably cover the usual tourist attractions?
Also, has anyone tried to visit NYC with only a 50mm (full frame equivalent) and was not disappointed?
