Knowing something about your body and lenses could help to suggest film speed, would you mind updating your profile to that effect?

Lars,

The Grand Canyon of the US is an enormous and complex system. You may chose from bright desert plateaus; broad, often hazy vistas; deep, dark and verdant side canyons with waterfalls; lizards, insects and wildflowers; mountain goats; rafters negotiating rapids; and perhaps lots of hikers and pack mules on the trails. Take your pick.

I do not know in what activities you'll be engaged, nor what are your specific interests in visiting the Canyon. I would suggest you keep your gear light in weight, especially if you are you are trekking into the canyon part way or all way down to the River.

Neither do I know what you've got available in your camera bag so I cannot make more specific recommendations.

Suffice to say the Canyon will present many photo opportunities, from tele to micro.

Have fun,

Paco

thanks for your speedy reply. I have a 24mm, 2.8 Nikon lens and a 80-200mm, 2.8 ED.

My other lens was stolen recently together with my Nikon 8008. I am going to buy a Nikon 100 before the trip. I am not going a any long trecks as I will be ther with my 10 year old and his scounting buddies.

I would like to but another lens too but I am not sure if am going to buy a zoom or not. I am thinking of the 50, 1.8 which might bre a boing but great lens.

You will love the F100 for its feel, meter and focusing speed.
Your lenses should do just fine. The nature of the trip talks about group photographs and plenty of portraits. If for prints to give those photographs away as mementos, I would carry:
Fuji Superia Reala 100 for when under bright light or Konica Centuria 200 just to have the next faster shutter speeds.
Kodak Royal Gold 400 or Supra Pro 400 or Agfa Optima Prestige 400, for action photos (those guys are not likely to be still), plus, just in case of overcast skies or under dim available ambient light Fuji Portrait NPZ 800 Pro. This should allow you to extend the poissibilities of the 50mm f/1.8 you are going to buy.
If you want slides for another reason:
Fuji Provia 100F and 400F; I don't think you will have a moment of rest to patiently position your tripod for a long exposure with something like Velvia 50 (slides) or Konica Impresa 50 (prints).
Wish I could go too. Enjoy!

Have a great time
