Video and still shooter going to Antarctica

It is indeed a once in a lifetime trip for me coming all the way from Hong Kong. I love to shoot Antarctica scenery with standard and UWA, and I will shoot stills AND video for wildlife. Hence, I need both.

Because of the extreme weather conditions unsuitable to change lens outside, and the diversity of focal length requirements, I will bring at 2 or may be even 3 cameras on the zodiac excursion.

2 cameras set up

Nikon + 10-24 for scenery

Panny + 14-150 all purpose

Plus Nikon 70-300 in bag

3 cameras set up

Nikon + 70-300

Oly + 9-18

Panny + 35-100

Plus 12-40 in bag

Really appreciate any suggestions, especially those with first hand experience to Antarctica.

Thank you.

P.S. I have also posted similar thread in other related forums, just to attract more readers who can help me make this trip even more rewarding.
