8mm? Do you need that when you have the 10-20?
50mm is covered by the 17-55
105 is covered by the 70-200

@saltireblue thanks; I think 50mm will be left at home; 105 (Macro) in case of flowers? 8mm for extra wacky landscapes?

My camera and gear are covered by the household insurance - lenses/body are separate items for insurance purposes so it may be worth checking your policy.

70-200 plus teleconverter? It depends if you want flowers as macro shots or flowers as part of a landscape. I would go for the latter.

And a remote release.
I have heard the displays have been pretty good this year so I would do some reading on how to photograph it (unless that is why you are going so have done so already) in which case the 10-20 may be very helpful in which case my lens choice may be 10-20, 50mm and 70-200.

Don't think you'll see any aurora. The recognised season is Oct.- Apr. with peak sightings Dec.-Feb.

I went in October, early 1990's, and the light was so good that one got a " polariser " effect without using one.

So, just a word of caution otherwise the sky will come out almost black, which you will of course be able to check with a digital camera, unlike my visit when I only discovered the effect back home after developing the transparencies Sad

Not a total disaster though, as I took shots with / without the polariser. Smile
