Hi Richard,

My best guess would be that they used a combo that's popular among professionals. The first one would be a Canon 24-70mm f2.8. This is perhaps the best lens for DSLR videographers. It allows wide angle, shallow depth of field (If you like it), and a great zoom range with a constant aperture. The second would be a Canon 70-200mm f2.8. This is a great lens because, like the 24-70mm, it has the same constant aperture throughout a great zoom range and you could also get a nice this shallow depth of field with this if you wanted to. Another cool thing with the 70-200mm is its internal zoom. So the lens stays the same length at all focal lengths. If I had to choose one though, it would be the 24-70mm. Considering that they were traveling to Machu Picchu, they probably wanted to travel light and the 24-70mm would be best for that.

Tim
