What you you bring?
May 22, 2011

What would you bring to Hawaii? Along with my K-5, Tamron 17-50 2.8, DA 15mm and DA 55-300 do you have any suggestions? I'll be in Oahu and Maui late June through mid July. I'll want photos of us surfing, evening Luau, street shots, maybe some nice tropical portraits and of course landscapes. Lots of landscapes .

I'll be renting or possibly buying additional lens(es) as needed. I was thinking about the DA 35mm 2.8 macro, the DA 50-135 and possibly another limited prime. I can't decide between 31mm, 40mm/43mm. Maybe a bigma....

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated, especially if you've been to similar locales or events.
--Will the 55-300 be good enough for surfing shots or do I need more reach?

Is the DA 35 2.8 a decent street shooter or would I benfit more from the 31 or 40/43?

Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions on this kit?
Thanks very much,
