Re: Best targets in the Zoo?

For the best results my advise is to narrow your plan for 'a day in the zoo' Are you going on your own just to make pictures or are you taking a day out with (grand)children?

In the latter, forget about making serious pictures, enjoy your day with your company and take a snapshot cam to click on the unforgettable moments or great portraits of the kids with the animals:-) The NEX+ 18-55 will be great.

If you go on you own on a dedicated photo mission make a small choice of animals you want to shoot. Take your time to observe their behavior and decide how you are going to frame them. When you end up with one great shot of - lets say - a zebra your day is well spend! Otherwise you will end up with a ton of snapshots you will never look back on but had a great day in de zoo

Take a backpack include some sandwiches - don't wast your time in de que for the hotdog guy/ oh yea I'm Dutch - and take all your lenses + a tripod!

Whatever you do, enjoy the nice day out!
