Last year i went backpacking through central and south america and was pretty disappointed with my p&s images (panny zs10). (panama, costa rica, & columbia). This year i'll be bringing my micro 4/3s gear and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on other gear i should bring down for a 2.5 week trip. I have my gx1, p20mm, o45mm, and r7.5mm in my little domke 5xb bag with rain cover (so useful already). I came back from a mini vacation from new orleans this past week (yes good timing) and i picked up a few things about shooting with my gear. climate changes fog up lens and EVF's pretty rapidly leaving the hotel room. (it was humid then rainy). i was often changing from the 20 to 45 where it got tiring. I need a zoom of some sort. But i dont think there will be photo opportunities like it as in new orleans. that city is busting with activity. south america is pretty chill. so yes ill be going to the major areas of peru -machu picchu - amazon jungle - la paz, Copacabana (Lake Titicaca) etc. so i was thinking maybe i should go for a telephoto lens even though i don't particularly care for them for normal shooting. I was considering bringing a tripod but now im thinking of a monopod. i could always use that as a hiking stick. anyways any feedback would be appreciated.
