Re: What would you take?

Coastline where lava flows into the ocean:

Crop of lava tube skylight - with a D800 you'll have plenty of resolution to crop. That orange glow is lava flowing underground:

Pu'u O'o

Shooting thru the cabin of the Hughes D500. Unfortunately, the crater was socked in with volcanic smoke:

A "doors-off" flight will provide much better shooting conditions - but they are harder to schedule. If you can't do a doors-off, then shoot with the 24-70 jammed against the window to minimize reflections. Having done this both ways - I'd take the 24-70 (you can't change lenses mid-flight on a doors-off tour). I'd crank up the ISO (I shot at 1600 with a D3 on an overcast day) and shoot at higher shutter speeds.
