Expect BRIGHT light in Hawaii. I would leave the long lenses at home. Wide angle will serve you better for the landscape shots. I'd opt for an SLR over a rangefinder. If you happen to need any film or camera equipment in Honolulu, go to Hawaii Photo Rental in the Kaimuki neighborhood of Honolulu. It's 10-15 minutes away from Waikiki.
