Alaska trip... M4/3 vs canon 5dmkIII
Jun 12, 2014

I'm heading to Alaska in July. Two years ago I was there and brought 2 slrs. My canon 5d MKIII and a rented 7d. I used the full frame for wide angle and the crop for telephoto with a rented 100-400 4-5.6 canon.

Fast forward... I could rent but I'd love to use what I own. I'd also prefer to travel lighter.

I have an omd em1 and the canon5d MKIII. I will bring the omd with the 12-40 2.8. I can also bring a 75mm 1.8 but it won't help much for wildlife. I need more reach. I also have a 75-300 oly v2 but it's not a fast lens. I worry if it's rainy and overcast that it could be an issue. So do I bring the canon too? And if so, rent a 100-400 ... I also have a Tamron 150-600 (super heavy) but I could bring it. Again though, it doesn't open as wide.

Decisions.... Can I get away with just the m4/3? Thoughts? Oh how I wish that 300mm 4.0 and 40-150 2.8 by olympus were available.
