2nd camera for safari?
3 months ago

Going to Kenya for a safari later in the year and need a second camera/body. First/main canera is Nikon D300s + Sigma 150-500 lens. I love this for safaris, but when those pesky animals come too close I just can't get them in the frame.

I've taken my Panny FX18 previously as the close up pics, or landscape style, but was thinking of maybe investing in a 4/3 instead.  Either that, or but a second Nikon body and take another lens, but this would be a lot of weight.

So, what would you recommend as a 4/3 body and Lens that could do wildlife and landscape and people? Lens length from 35 - 150 would be nice

Budget is flexible - would like some ideas I guess first. Anyone got examples of 4/3 pics from Africa?

Cheers.
