So I plan to go to Costa Rica for two weeks at the end of April. I have a Canon EOS 20D DLSR, but I never really learned photography outside of the very basics. My g/f has a good eye and took one course in college, so she might be the one doing most of the shooting. I saw the sticky, but was wondering if you can first narrow down the types of lenses you would want if you were going to Costa Rica and wanted to take nature photos.
I have 3 lenses already, so maybe I have a couple worthwhile, but thought I'd ask. Budget wise, I recently was laid off but have a few years salary saved up, so I'm not stressed but would like to keep it reasonable <$1K each, with no more than two lenses to buy.
I'd also really love to grab a pair of good binoculars and have zero knowledge of such things.
