A 300mm for safari: is it enough?

It has been only three months since that we are back from our Italy trip that we are planning the next one: a photo safari in Africa in 2014!

Gears will be important. Good gears even more so.

Here’s a first article of probably a long series of them on the subject.

    It depends; are you talking about the f 2.8 or the f4? Go to that link: ! http://www.pbase.com/richardharris/mammals . Most pictures were taken with an “old 20D” as you would say, using a 300 f4. So there is your answer to your question.

    Here is what I suggest you to get: AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR, AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II, AF-S Nikkor 300mm f/4D IF-ED and a Nikon TC-14E II.

    Or: Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR Zoom Lens, Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 EX DG OS APO HSM AF and the Nikon TC-14E II.

    These lenses will be the start of a built up into your photo gear that will last you a life time; once you have lenses like these, you won’t need to change them unless you really want to.

    What I was thinking of:
    – Buy the NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II
    – Rent the NIKKOR 200-400mm f/4 VR

    I will look into the Sigma 120-300 f/2.8
