    Will be heading to the Big Island for a week and then Kauai for a week the end of June. Normally shoot boys sports and birds with the big lens.
    Ill be using a Nikon D300 and have the 18-200 VR1 and 70-200 glass to bring. Was thinking about renting a nice wide angle lens to take with.
    Any suggestions on the ones below:

    12-24 f4
    16-35 f4
    17-55 f2.8
    24-70 f2.8

    I have beend reading up on places to go for pictures. Any suggested out of the way places and best times (morning/evening) would be appreciated.

    Counting down the days.

    Thanks
    Mike

    I spent most of my time on Oahu with a trip to the Big Island. I brought a lot of gear but usually walked around with my D800E / 70-200 F4 and my M9 35 1.4 & 20 3.4. The 20 got the most use and there was a lot of opportunity for the 70-200. The 12-24 is a great WA for your D300 and a TC-14 would be great on your 70-200.
