Oh, yes! It makes me think of my 16-35 so often.

Thanks emag and jerome2710.
Any particular brand of suction cup mount you recommend? ... which ones are you using?
before last year I would have disagreed with jerome, but now I agree. my uncle brought a 550D from Taiwan to the states and went to Niagara Falls. he took it to the vantage points below the falls where it got plenty of big drops on it but wasn't obviously splashed directly ... yet it died and had to go to Canon service to be repaired.
this past month I was out with the 5D Mark II in the cold and wet for an entire afternoon, getting rained on steadily and constantly. the rear joystick froze up near the end, although it recovered after a night of staying dry in the hotel and was fine after. that being said, I'd still take my 5DII out again in the same conditions.
however, I have less faith in the Rebel bodies. if you are going to as many extreme places as you've listed, I think it would be worth investing in a 7D (or 50D, or 40D, or a 5-series body) and keeping the 450D around in the sack as a backup.
