Hello,

You already have a great combination, and you do need as wide-angle a lens as you can get to do justice to aquariums. I have had excellent luck with a similar cam-lens combination recently, with relatively high ISOs. You might want to take a look at this thread I started not long ago.

The Monterey Bay aquarium is great, and it has several outdoor settings, where the Pacific Sea Otters come to play, so a telephoto lens is useful.

In my experience, typically aquariums are dark, flash is either not permitted or is counterproductive, but the new cameras show remarkable quality in spite of high ISOs.

Have fun (good luck with parking, too!)
