Re: Panasonic G3+100-300 for African safari ( Yes !)

My wife and I travel to Africa annually to spend five to six weeks in the bush with Kruger being our favorite destination. We prefer to self guide, self drive and self cater. My wife shoots the stills and I do the video. On our last trip (2013) I upgraded from a GH2 to a GH3. Fabulous improvement.

The kit for our return this year is quite complex and consists of the following;

Me...GH3, 100-300-video

Wife..GH3, 100-300-still

Backup...GH3, 14-140-either

No lens changing

Extended telephoto is a nice feature as well, doubling the 100-300 reach with no quality degridation
