Recommended equipment for Alaska Trip
Oct 12, 2006

I have the following:

XTi
Kit lens
50 F1.8
70-200 F4L

My wife and I are going to tour Denali and some of the coast and then we are going on a 4 night cruise around Prince William Sound in a small 78 guest boat. I would like to capture nice landscapes, wildlife (birds, bears, whales, etc.) on the cruise, and then any other things I find interesting.

What other lenses and/or equipment would you recommend that I have for the trip next summer? I will be buying it periodically until then so I would like to start making the decisions now. I was leaning towards buying a 17-40 F4L but would be interested to hear people weigh in on that also. Would CP filters be a necessity for the boat/water shots?
