Hi, I will be traveling to Tapiche for the first time in April and am really excited to be with and photograph the wild life there. Any suggestions for camera lenses to bring would be greatly appreciated please. Currently, I have an olympus em-1 mkii with 12-40 f2.8, 40-150 f3.5-5.6, 12-100 f4, 100-400 f3.5-5.6, primes 12 f2, 25 f.18, 75 f1.8. In the spirit of keeping my back unherniated, I'm hoping to get away with carrying two zooms and one prime, but can't decide which lenses would be the most useful? A faster lens or one with more reach? Is it easy to change lenses on the fly there or is it rainy/humid enough consistently that changing lenses risks sensor damage? Just wanted to see what you lucky folks who have had a chance to visit Tapiche carried. Thanks in advance for any advice and happy travels everyone :).
