My company has an engineering center in the eastern city of Chennai (formerly Madras). I'll be spending 3 weeks there starting later this month. It will be my first trip to India. I am told the weather this time of year is truly miserable, even worse than Singapore. Temperatures reach 110 degrees with 100% humidity. This scares me from taking my D200 even though it has a durable weather-sealed body. I'm more concerned about my lenses. I was thinking of taking my new 18-200 VR-II since I have very limited space for carry-ons, and this single lens covers the entire gamut. If anyone has used their cameras and lenses in similar climates, did you face any problems other than the mist that forms the moment you step out from the cool low-humidity air of your hotel room? Did you get condensation on the mirror or sensor? (Particularly if you try to change lenses outdoors.) Did you find yourself a target for thieves or pickpockets by brandishing an expensive camera? Any finally, if you have photographed in India, how was your experience?
