I am going to the Galapagos after all, for being able to get close to wild life. So as you mention, I might use my 12-40mm f/2.8 a lot more. And maybe, once in a while get in a giant tortoise with my 7-14mm f/2.8.

I was almost thinking that maybe I don't need my fast ( f/2.8 ? ) lenses and just take my 7-14mmf/4, 12-50mm and 40-150mm f/4.5. They are certainly lighter!

I didn't find any need for fast lenses on my trip.  We were extremely lucky to see a volcano erupting at night, but even that I was able to shoot at f/5.6.  There was very little other low light shooting.
