Going on safari - bang for your buck camera recommendations


Im going to Africa in a couple of months and am looking for a second camera body for the trip.

I currently have a GX1 with 14mm, 20mm and 45mm primes. I am going to buy the pany 100-300mm for wildlife safari shots.

Im looking for the best bang for your buck camera body. I have seen new G3 camera bodies on ebay for $300 which looked appealing. It would be useful to have a viewfinder for the telezoom im getting.

Im happy to look at second hand cameras. I know the G3 is quite old now, should I be considering something else or does a $300 G3 hit the sweet spot with price vs performance.

Thanks in advance for any advice.


(BTW - anyone with a 100-300mm they want to sell, let me know!)
