I'm taking a trip to Belize in the near future and I'm having trouble making up my mind about what kit to bring. I'm planning on either buying or renting a waterproof p&s for the kayaking/snorkling portions of the trip (Any particular favorites out there?), but I'm struggling to figure out why SLR gear I should bring.
On my other trips ("classical" sightseeing), I've done very well with just my 50D + Sigma 17-70. The distortion and CA on the wide end is annoying, but it's an easy kit to travel with.
On the other hand, this trip will have a day of wildlife hiking plus days on nice little islands that I'd like to have something better/nicer for the wide end. So that leads me to bringing my Tokina 12-24 and the 70-200/2.8 + TC as well.
But then If I've got wide and tele covered with better lenses, that's got me thinking that maybe I want to bring something nicer as a "normal" lens, like the Canon 35/2 or the Sigma 30/1.4, instead of the 17-70.
Any suggestions? I think I've got three options..
a) 17-70, only
b) 12-24, 17-70, 70-200
c) 12-24, 30 / 35 / ?, 70-200
Any advice? Thanks!
