I will be on a Safari ( or trying to ) to Tanzania and Kenya on July.
I'm a rangefinder user ( M8 / MP ) and will take these for the scenics and portraits.
I have bought on xmas a DSLR for Macro and Tele work and got a Nikon D2h together with a Nikon 60mm Macro.
Now.... for the Safari.
Should I get a 80-200 AFS 2.8 plus a TC or a 80-400 and no converter ? Or even a 300 F4 with a 2x TC ?
Changing the DSLR not an option, since I got the D2h for a cheap bottom rock price... but in regards of a Tele, what should I go for ?
I reckon that with a AFS 80-200 I will have much faster AF speed, even with the TC on... but isnt reach the most important thing on a Safari ?
Renting not an option, at least I dont know any store that rents big lenses in Portugal... so getting a 500 or 600, its a no no.
One STRETCHY option is getting my budget a bit higher and get a 300 2.8 AF ( not AFS ) with a 2x TC... worth it ?
