Hi everybody,

greetings. This is my first post in m4/3rd forum and I am bothering you with a question.

You are welcome!

I will bring my D7000+tamron 70-300 VC for the safari and I planned to rent a Panasonic 100-300 for her G3. I planned to use the G3 as a back up to my Nikon and also to use it when 450 effective focal length of the Tamron would not be sufficient.

I personally would like a Panny 100-300 for such a trip; but I don't understand why a Panny 300mm on a smaller sensor is any different from a centre crop from the Nikon of a Tamron lens at 300mm fl.

I leave much other good advice here from those who have used to 100-300mm lens.

Best wishes for your trip, enjoy!
