Lenses for a Safari
1

I was asked recently which 43rds or m43rds lens would be best to take on Safari in September 2014, with an E-M1?

The 300mm f/2.8  or Sigmonster (if one could be found) would probably be the best, but if living on a budget, would the 90-250mm with EC20,  50-200mm with EC-20 or the Bigma be the best choice.

My answer was that length matters and the Bigma would be my first choice with the 50-200mm coming in second.

I am not an expert, so I figured I would check with the experts.  Thoughts?
