I would think twice about 200-400, you are loosing over one stop on long end, also less DOF control, background blur on safaris are sometimes really important to separate animal from background.

Also on safaris you are on vehicle so not to much to cary around. I would always bring longest fastest lens I have to safari.

Some of my images from first safari in Masai Mara:

Beautiful shots. Love the lens and feel it is the most versatile wildlife lens on the planet but got tired of the weight. I will buy back in if they do an RF version with the big white weight reduction program to the 6lb range ( like EF III’s). I sold my 200-400, but can always rent.

Thanks David, I am sure you will get great shots with 100-500, for sure it will be much lighter and easier to carry and use.

All the best

Kristian
