Help with a decision
I am getting married this summer and we will be doing an Alaskan cruise for the honeymoon. I expect there will be many photographic opportunities and want to be prepared but not (overly) weighed down. I shoot with a Canon 7DII and the following long lenses: A fish eye (I forget what brand), Tamron 16- 300, Sigma 120- 400, and the following Canon lenses: 10- 20, 17-55 f2.8, 15-85, 24-70 f2.8, 70- 200 f2.8, and 70- 300. I have some primes (30, 50, 85mm).
I was contemplating getting the Tamron 18-400 (and selling the 16-300) but wasn't able to get a definitive answer as to if the change was really worth it. Thoughts? Any and all feedback (besides taking them all- grin) is appreciated.
Hey Hoggers, anyone use the Nikon 200-500? Been looking for something with serious reach to complete my set up. Plan to use for sunsets. nature, animals. etc. Does anyone have experience with the 200-500? I have been researching and so far have read quite a few positive reviews. I generally take reviews with a grain of salt and rely on real world experiences to help me make up my mind. My initial thinking was a 300mm+ 1.4 tele but I am not too keen on teles. My budget in the $1500 range. Thanks for any input.

Why use focus lock
Hopefully this hasn't been discussed before as I'm unable to find anything, so here goes...
Recently saw some discussion re: the "L" button (is that the same as the AE-L/AF-F button?) when referring to focus lock. I'm using a Nikon D5300 with a Sigma 17-70mm Contemperary lens.
Every now and then, I find my focus indicator is not centered where I usually have it, but off to a side, up/down or left/right of center. I have to use the button (forgot technical term) to bring it back to the center.
How do I lock/unlock it so it stays centered and then when would I use this locking feature?
I have 2 books and UG, but none go into why's as to when to use this feature.
I hope I made myself clear enough that you get what my question is. Need anymore info, let me know.
If there is a link to further discussion, please post it.
Thanks in advance for your help.
