Re: Question about GH3 and other equipment for travel to Africa

If cost remains a major concern, as an alternative to your preferred option of taking two MFT bodies you might consider the FZ200 as your backup camera.  For many purposes (posting on the Web, 8 X 10 prints, etc.) the difference in IQ between the FZ200 and one of the MFT cameras is minimal. The FZ200 offers you coverage of a huge zoom range for wide angle shots as well as telephoto close ups of animals, and the video capabilities are excellent.  If you find there's a 15 kg limit on the weight of your carryon baggage, note that the FZ200 is much lighter than an MFT camera with a long telephoto lens like the 100-300mm.
