from the 21st I'm off to houston for 5 1/2 weeks, going to be taking my canon 300d w/battery grip, kit lens, canon ef-s 10-22(kenko mc uv filter + lens hood), canon ef 70-200 f4l(b+w mrc uv haze filter), canon speedlite 430 ex mk1, gorillapod slr, sandisk extreme iii 4gb (30mb/s) cf, sandisk ultra 4gb (30mb/s) cf, jessop 1gb cf, gittos rocket blower(should I take it or leave at home?), cf reader and battery charger all in a lowepro flipside 300(the 400 is £20 more and too big for my needs, would have been able to put magazine/s, chocolate etc in the front compartment for the flight but other then that think overkill once I got back). I'm thinking about having a look at getting the 50mm 1.8 while I'm there, anyone know any good camera stores there? also what about the warranty when I'm back in the uk? with the 50mm 1.8 due to the price of the lens it's not a major issue, but if I was to look at more expensive lenses it would be an issue for me. what about the warranty situation with sigma and tamron lenses? anyone got any suggestions of places to visit that are good for landscape and wild life? my uncle may take me to florida(disney world) so any good places in between houston and there that I might be able to get my uncle to stop over?
