I wouldn't buy L&M SOLA lights. Down the road you will find the batteries don't hold a charge and then you have no option except throwing them away, as you cannot replace the batteries. 

 

Lights are always a good investment. If you change your rig you can still use the lights from the old rig. It's best to go for the best you can get, so most power plus changeable batteries, in your budget range.

You can't have too much light. All the powerful lights have variable power settings, so you can max them out for your wide shots, and dial them back for closeups.

There are many options. I would recommend that whatever lights you get, make sure they have replaceable batteries. I used to use Light and Motion, but have had so many problems with batteries dying after a year of use, that I now use Keldans. Many people find the FIX lights are a very good option too. At the moment, among my video mates, Keldans or FIX lights seem the most popular.

I honestly think it makes no difference what BCD you use. I personally prefer a BCD without the corrugated inflater hose. I use a Aqualung Dimension i3 BCD. It's incredibly comfortable, doesn't have the stupid inflater hose dangling down, very easy and intuitive to inflate and deflate without changing your body position. It doesn't have a cummerbund either and I do not miss it at all. 

 

For my reg and I prefer small and lightweight, with Miflex hoses. Less jaw-strain and I only really dive in tropical waters, so the seal isn't important.

 

I think whatever you go for, you will enjoy after getting used to it. Try to pick something that seems to suit your needs.
