Hello! I am a beginner who is going to Iceland in a few weeks to hopefully see The Northern Lights. I have a D5100, with only the kit lens. So far, I have mostly used the automatic setting, but am trying to learn my camera.
I have an opportunity to rent a lens or even a camera. The 2 lenses I am considering renting are the Tamron SP AF Di II LD 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Wide Angle Lens for Nikon, or the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED. The camera I am considering renting is the D5500. I will purchase a tripod.
Should I rent a lens or camera (or both)? Or, is it possible to get a decent shot with my camera/lens(of course with Mother Naure's help)?
I do appreciate any and all help. Thank you in advance.
