You might get distortion in the photos due to hot air when using a zoom in a hot country.

You are right. It is much better to stand 3m from the lion/leopard/bull elephant/rhino. That way heat distortion won't be what you have to worry about.

Depends on what you are photographing. I've seen some good photos of wildlife taken with a large zoom so I don't know how the hot air has not distorted the photo. Maybe it was taken in a cooler time of the day.


Maybe it was only a "house-cat" before the air-distortio n made it look like a LION
