Thanks for the kind comments.

You are right for small creatures and birds (or large at a distance) reach is everything. So yes 400mm is the minimum and even that comes out short and you start drooling for a 500 or 600mm.

For me the 70-300 is a good compromise to use both for Safari and also at home in the UK (family, kids etc).
