The Sony A77 plus 16-50 should come as a kit. B&H has it listed as $1988

Sony is limited on weather resistant systems, but this is a nice combination. The other listed weather resistant lens is the new 500mm f/4. If you are in conditions of near constant rain and high humidity, I would certainly get a rain cover for any camera. If it is occasional rain and the cameras have a chance to dry off a bit between showers, weather resistance alone may be enough. In any case bring a water-proof P&S, they will survive any humidity condition and at least get you pictures, if of lessor quality.
