Re: SLR LENS for Antartica 2009!
I guess is better to stick to what I have and maybe just upgrade 70-200 to the image stablizer model for the zodic boats. I already have the 300mm lens. I was in the galapous Islands last year and mostly used the 24-70 and 70-200 for the wild life and 24-70 for the land scapes. You really don't want the ice burgs to look distored. What about the Gitzo, if you have the money. I need something that is light. Paul seems to like the primes, Maybe a 35mm would not hurt for the landscapes? what do you think about this. I will have a laptop with me, but I don't attended to stay in EZE, is very dangous to be walking around with camera equipment and laptop in that city. I am going stiegnt to the falls and not looking back. I will have 14 GB of memory for my camera. I hope this is enough, I plan to shoot in Raw plus jpeg, just in case the jpeg shoots don't came out. I think buying a 500mm is to much over kill in places where the wildlife is so close you almost pet them.
