I go twice most years, with care its not that expensive if you keep away from alcohol!!!!! I now take a 28-70mm and 70-200 for my Nikon D3 (full frame) having really cut down on other lenses compared with what I used to take. Agree with the above mentioned filters except I find the polariser rarely needed. But there will be plenty of birds, so something long if you are into those, Too light for aurora. I do take a tripod but I always have 4 x 4 car so have plenty of space. A walking pole is useful especially if going on the glaciers. If you are driving yourself, get a good roadmap when you get there as sometimes the roads are not all that obvious especially if the car insurance allows you to go on the really rough roads. (mine does). Good boots are essential especially if walking through the lava fields.
If you like a drink, be aware that you can go through dutyfree going in through Keflavik. so worth buying it there, and not in the hotels. Have fun, I always do but remember, even in summer the weather is sometimes foul. Ken

Sorry I should have said 24-70 mm not 28 - 70. It doesn't bother me but the light nights do cause some people to have difficulty sleeping and they take the eyes shades like those handed ot on aircraft on long haul flights. I find also that I get a good exchange rate on using my debit card and in some places cash is not the prefered way of paying for things. It is rare for garages to accept cash as mostly you pay by card at the pumps. Ken
