Thanks Cenzo,

I was just about to start a thread to ask these questions. Very nice pictures.

Which lens did you use the most?

I am heading to Africa for medical mission but I have 1 free day for a game drive between countries. We are extremely limited on personal items we can carry so I was thinking on living my Full frame/APS kit behind and use the following (fits in my fanny pack + 1 smallish bag):

J1 #1 with FT-1 and 70-300 VR (10-30 in the pocket)

J2 #2 with 30-110

Samsung EX2F for the landscape (24-80 equiv)

My assumption was that changing lenses would be too cumbersome. I need 2 cameras to document our work anyway as the team devides into 2 workgroups in Lesotho.

Would you advise a different combo?

Thanks

ps. I truly believe photography as a hobby is defined by the pleasure you get from the activity. It does not matter what equipment or results. I am a hobbyist and a very awful photographer (snapshooter is a better name) but a very happy one.
