It would be a no brainer

If I was going to take such an exciting trip it would be a no brainer---You would definitely want a lens that could do macro for all the exotic plant life and a telephoto for wildlife. Olympus 50mm macro which is very light in weight but is one of the great lenses made for macro, landscape and low light photography-- then I would buy Olympus 50-100 SWD for your wonderful telephoto pics. I would not hesitate to mate these two great lenses with the E-5 which in my estimation is one of the most under appreciated cameras around....But reading between the lines in your post it seems you already have made up your mind but you won't get any reaffirmation from me at least.....John
