Stepped up to D 600 from D80 for once in a lifetime trip to Africa. I have a $2000 budget for another lens , thinking of Sigma 50 150, nikon 300F4 $1.7 tele. Any other suggestions or ideas?I have a Nikon 70 200 VR but think Iwill need more reach.

Thanks for your advice

Not sure what I would do. Lots of 50x super zooms on the market. Why a super zoom? You could never carry a lens that large and its nice and quick. I would still take my Full Frame but keep something wide on it for nice landscapes.

Think about it...would you take a 800mm F5.6 if you could? If you say yes..then I would do it. Its a 20K lens but you can rent it for about 500-600 a week. Might sound liek alot but its a once in a lifetime go for it.
