Re: How are you travelling, and when?

Lovely shots, Erich! I vote for a V1, with adapter and AF-S 70-300 VR, which is superb in the center, which is what matters - that equals around 200-800, with superb anti-shake! For the rest I'd consider a E-5, with light lens, maybe an RX100, or something like that. Check out the Nikon V1 forum for some amazing bird shots (do a search for Bobby Handal's photos, for instance).

I'll never again invest in anything as big and heavy as the Sigma 150-500 OSS I used to have, as the results with the tiny V1 is often better than the K-5 plus that Sigma ever was!

Some of my own V1 shots:

70-300 plus Kenko 1.4X gave the moon this face!

I used a Canon 500D close-up lens on the 70-300 for this shot of a small fly!
