That is one seriously packed trip but you will never forget it I am sure. I am very jealous I would love to hear how you enjoyed these locations so drop me an email when you get back.

I forgot about one of your questions in my last post. Both the 100-400mm and the 300mm both handle fairly easily. These lenses are not in the unwieldy class of telephotos like a 300mm f2.8 of 500mm f4. When comparing the 2 lenses the 300mm f4 is a little better as its lighter, shorter at equivalent focal lengths (as the 100-400 extends by about 50%) and better balanced (not as front heavy).
