Re: Zoom recommendation for safari

Your concerns are not issues on normal safaris. you are in a pop-top Toyota "safari jeep". You do not take photos while it is moving; you are on dirt roads bouncing around. You stop to take photos. Dust is not an issue if you do not change lenses when when the vehicle is moving. You will rarely use anything under 150mm when out on safari.  You only need a wider lens when an elephant walks within 15 meters of your vehicle. The wider lenses are mostly used for non-safari photos. Dropping a lens in a safari vehicle is no more likely than in your own car.
