We visit Ontario Place pretty much each summer and last year we bought a summer pass for each member of the family. We visited it again today, but the older boys already find it too boring. I don't believe we will be visiting it often unless there are major changes. It's a shame, as I really do like it. It's very well designed, just not enough to attract people back often.

As of today, many of the attractions, rides were removed or not working. They are starting a face lift, but we will see how much.

In previous years, I would carry my 1D II or 5D or 30D or whatever current Canon camera I had, and a 70-200mm f2.8, 100-400mm zoom lens, plus a few primes. It was murderous. The last two years, I brought only a kid lens and a couple of small wide angle primes. It was just as well. Today, I used mostly the 18-55 kit lens, and occasionally the 16mm pancake, and only a few pictures with the Leica-R 35mm f2. My only complain about the kit lens (and the 16mm pancake) is that the distortion is horrible, especially on the wide end for the zoom. I find the sharpness quite acceptable for both lenses. This is true for the Canon 18-55mm IS kit lens as well. I guess we can not expect too much from a cheap lens. What they offer is already pretty good for the price.
