Re: 500mm

I wish I could carry that size lens but I will have to do with lesser reach.  The 300 2.8 with the 2X TC works quite well so I could go for that combination.

Thanks,

Marsha

On my one safari (through Namibia and Botswana) I was often using a 500mm plus a 1.4 converter to secure the kind of bird images I wanted. Even on large mammals the straight 500 came in really handy. Not saying you need to lug anything that big around, but there will be occasions when you want real reach so having 400mms available would be good.
