If you're stuck on taking the SD1 (not that I'm blaming you), then I would probably take these lenses:

Sigma 50mm f1.4 EX DG HSM EX 77mm filter size

Sigma 10-20mm EX f4-5.6 DC HSM 77mm filter size

Sigma 105mm macro EX f2.8 58mm filter size

...

and adapters where all to run 77mm filters

- neutral density

- circ polariser

As much as I love the 70-200mm, I just think that you'll be better off without the weight for just that one lens.  I would just plan on cropping for the reach you can't obtain by zooming with your feet.  Even the 105mm would be optional, but perhaps there are close-focus detail you might want to capture that the 50 and 10-20mm won't get you.

Just some thoughts.  Enjoy your trip!
