Re: SLR LENS for Antartica 2009!
Sounds good, but I already have the 100mm lens, but is for Marco photos, I used it in the amarzon with great results. Also, how many memory cards do I need? I am planning of having 3 2GB plus two 4 GB giving a total of 14 GB. I see where I can get a bean bag? what about a monopod what is a good brand to buy? most of my lens are around 2.8 fixed, I only have three zooms but they are 2.8 and 4 the 17-40 and 70-200 2.8, and 24-70 2.8, the rest is a 100mm, 50 1.4, and 300mm I have 1.4 converter and heard it gives better results than the 2x becuse you do not lose as many stops. After speaking with tour operator, they said there are 4 places around the sheltion islands to see the fur seals and many penguiln colneys. Hope to hear from you soon. I guess some people get carried away like a disease going out and buying all these long lenes costing thounsnds of dollar where the money can be used towards paying for the curise by just sticking to what they have. the pictures I have seen on other sites they used lenes that where 24-70 and 70-200, nothing larger.
Hope to hear from you soon about this
