It is a great lens, but search discussions here about the lens sucking dust - it is essentially an air pump each time you extend it in or out. Also search for how to vacuum the dust back out of the lens.

Yes, definitely. That was the reason not to use it too much during game drives. Also changing the lenses during very dusty rides is not recommended because of the exposed sensor.

I kept the same lens all the time. My main gear was D800+200-400/4 and secondary was D300+24-70/2.8. This was my backup-of-the-backup but it served very nicely during the village visits and e.g. during Hell's Gate hike.

Definitely recommended.
