I'm going on a 3 day camping/hiking trip to the Channel Islands. I'm going to be going to the Santa Cruz island. We will setup camp in the main campground and day hike and kayak for the weekend.

I know there's a lot of wildlife on the island and I'm wondering what I should take in the way of gear.

I have a 24-120 VR, but I think I might need something a bit longer for some wildlife shots. I could probably afford to purchase the 70-300 VR for the trip, but if I was to want to take something more expensive I would probably just have to rent it.

Anybody been to this island before? Any advice on what lens(es) I should take with me? What about parts of the island that have a lot of nice scenery and wildlife?

This turned out to be longer than I planned, but thanks for reading! :smile:

You should be fine with the 24-120. Better to take less and make do with what you have as opposed to lugging too much stuff around.

I'm a big fan of renting lenses. It's affordable, gives you a chance to see if you like the lens, and allows you to make an informed decision without all the risk of a purchase.
