One other point for what it's worth - the price of a new 70-300G is quite a bit more than a new Tamron 70-300USD, and folks on this forum rate the Tamron very highly. I haven't used it, but I think for the same price as the new Tamron you could find a good used copy of the Sony, and it will hold its value very well from what I've seen of the G series lenses... this is how I justified getting the Sony over the Tamron so maybe it'll work for you too! Good luck and make sure to post the pictures you bring back from Africa.
