Is the DFA 150-450 too long at the wide end for Zambia? Yes it is.

There are times where you will want to get shots of elephants, lions merely meters away from your vehicle. 140mm is no where near wide enough.

I'm sure that the Pentax is optically better than the Sigma, but is just not a practical lens for the terrain and conditions of Zambia. Having two cameras is a solution, but just adds to weight where there are strict carry on luggage restrictions for light aircraft (especially given the weight of the DFA 150-450 already).

Thank you, PentUp, that is really valuable information. I will only have one camera which is another reason to go for the more flexible option.
