 Post subject: Lenses for safari
PostPosted: Sun Sep 23, 2012 4:45 am 
Hi everyone,

I am planning a Safari. I currently have the nikkor 18-300 f3.5-5.6G. Is this lens enough? If not, what lens shouldni buy?

Hello Gonzalo, and welcome to the friendly Camera Labs forum!
To enjoy your stay here please have a look at the house-rules!
You have a Nikon 28-300 VR plus a 18-300 VR? That's quite some overlap.
I have both the Nikon 28-300 VR plus the Nikon 70-200 VRii and I must say: for a Safari the 70-200 simply is too short - although the image quality is better than from the 28-300 and the 18-300.
On the other hand the Nikon 200-400/4.0 VR is a monster of a lens in size/weight and price. Unfortunately the Nikon 80-400 VR is quite outdated although image quality is not bad.
But perhaps you should consider the Sigma 120-400 OS or the Sigma 150-500 OS (I've linked to my reviews).
