Re: African Wildlife Pics

Yes, definitely sure, I did have a 2x extender with me, but it stayed in the bag for the whole trip.

With hindsight, there was one opportunity, where I could have used the 2x to good effect, but only thought about it when it was too late.

Definitely no 2x on the lens this time though, I'd have noticed

We were pretty close to everything. It's one of those places in Africa and there are many, where a 70-200 f2.8 would have been the best lens to have. The 300 was a bit long for most occasions and the 100-400 stayed in the bag.

Still, the 300 did enable these pics and was just right in these circumstances.

I shot on av with aperture set at f2.8 the whole time I used this lens.

All these were taken at about 50m (50 yards) from the subject.
