Re: Africa-Safari with D7100. Which lenses to buy?

Just got back from Pilanesburg, South Africa, Ivory Tree game lodge.

The lodge was great, very posh and to purpose.

Buffet style food that was great.

Saw the big five, mostly used my 70-300VR on my D90.

Two game drives a day, first started before sunrise second ended after sundown.

Switched to the 18-200vr occasionally when something was right next to our truck, or when the sun wasn't up and using a spotlight.

Our guide, Yolondy, kept a Sigma 150-500 on her lap, it gave me lens lust.

Could have used the extra reach.

The next time I go I will get either the sigma 150-500 or the Tamron 200-500, and a d7100.

That is a much more useful range.

Got back yesterday and haven't yet gone through the 4000 pictures.
