People were duct taping their tents down.. I suggest not using tents and getting a chair in the solarium.. much less wind and a lot warmer.
I have a Canon 7D DSLR, Tokina 11-16mm F2.8, Canon 24mm F1.4L II, Canon 85mm F1.8, Canon 200mm F2.8 L II
but for cheap, just get a Canon DSLR Rebel, kit lenses, and a 50mm F1.8 "nifty fifty".
I like those lenses a lot.. I want to get a 6.5mm fisheye soon
