If you like to stop, take picture and enjoy your time - drive. Lots of great places along the way and some past Hana (i.e. Charles Lindbergh grave site). You'll probably want to spend more time at the Seven Sacred Pools then a tour would allow for, as well.

Thanks! Driving it is!!!

I'm headed to The Big island in 2 weeks! I plan on doing tones of landscape and waterfalls, so I'm bringing my 16-35II, 70-200 L IS II and my 100mm L macro for flowers shots! And thinking about buying the 50mm L as well.

If you had the 100-400 would you bring that or the 70-200? That's my dilemma! Less is better for me. I just bought the singh-ray vari-n-trio filter. I'm pretty excited to use that!

For me, I'd bring the 70-200. I don't see me using anything bigger than that because I shoot mainly landscape. The 16-35 and 5d2 will be the work horse(s)for this trip; along with a 10 stop nd filter and four Singh ray gnd filters and one reverse nd filter and a couple of polarizers as well. I'm stoked for this trip! Last year's Hawaii trip was more for family vacation, so no really good photos were taken. This year it's all about picture from 4 a.m. to 2hrs after sunset.

I was there about a month ago and I had my 17-40 and 70-200. The 17-40 was great, but the 70-200 wasn't always quite long enough. While I would never want to be more than an arms length from my 70-200, the 100-400 may be the better choice if you're going light.

Do you think a tour to Hana is better than driving? I like to stop at everything that is cool! I can't find my extender, nor do I want to. I can't stand it. So, you think the 70-200 will get dolphins, sea animals from a boat tour okay? THANKS! BTW, we're all booked in Maui except for the road to Hana. We were thinking of driving that.

They stop along the way at some cool places like the black beach. I would not want to drive the road as it is VERY narrow when you start to get to Hana!!! Also, on this tour they take you along the backside fo the road to Hana that nobody ever goes on...Trust me when I tell you it is well worth it!! I road race so I love curves and we rented a sports car while there, but I am glad I did the tour with them :-)

Now I am not saying you would not have fun driving by yourself, it is just very cool having a guide that knows all about the plants, knows where all the falls are, gives TONS of history along they way...Knew where those cool painted Eucaliptus were that we would have missed (coolest tree I have ever saw). Knew about the black beach with the little caves, etc.
Oh, If the Humpbacks are still there (they were thinning out when we were there), those boats can get you in 200mm range! The 100-400 would be just fine also though!

I drove the road to Hana on my last trip, I did not have fun driving, I would much rather have a tour drive me.

I had this dilemma last Nov. also. I ended up leaving my dslr home and instead brought my Canon HV20 hd camcorder with handheld mic (with muffin to dampen wind noise) and a small tripod. It took good enough stills and fantastic video.

loved kauai - we brought the 16-35, 35, 50, 70-200

but that 100-400 might help get shots of those far-away waterfalls...

sundevelstormin: Your pictures brought back good memories of Kauai. We were on our 25th anniv. Did you happen to hike the Na Pali coast?

THANKS - we enjoyed Kauai alot more than the Big Island (Kona)

we were there for our 20th... we didn't hike the trail, it was wet the day we went out to Ke'e and people were coming back with scary stories of wash-outs and slippery slopes, so we stuck to snorkeling and beach combing.

I went to Maui a little over a year ago. I would bring a wide lens, I had 24-105, and a long lens, I used a 70-200.

Whatever you do, when on Maui, go to Iao Valley. Lots of stuff to take photos of. Do a Google search and you will get a good idea of what it is. I went their twice!

Last photo is of Iao.
