Well, the 1.7x will lose you about 11/2 stops. I've been to SA and kruger. Plenty of light. The zoom on that lumix is mostly digital zoom on the long end. much different even though the lens is rated f2.8. might work with a mono. saw lots of people using bean bags but if you don't have an open top rover bb won't work. I would suggest a mono anyway. and a TC - whichever one you decide on.

BTW you will need two bodies anyway. you won't have time to change lenses when animals appear and you really don't want to change lenses in all that dust anyway.

Just keep clicking, something will turn out fantastic.
