Should be about 85 f not too bad as it is their winter.
Only relatively cheapy lenses Brit but I do have 2 already and it seems bonkers not to use them

A good zoom would be advantageous on safari! canon does a nice selection of 70-200s- i have the 70-200 f4 L which is very good quality for the price - took me a while to get the shots i wanted but i'm learning- it's not the lens it's me.
The 7D has got some cracking reviews, still waiting for some sample shots from Keith!
It's wonderful when you get to the stage where you appreciate primesOriginally Posted by britchick, post: 188846
a good zoom would be great for safari, I wouldnt get one without Image stabilisation though so my choice of the really good lenses would be
70-200f4 IS (since the 2.8 is a bit expensive)
or possibly even better for safari 100-400IS
The 7D is the best APS-C camera that Canon do, it's streets ahead of the 40d/50d etc. I still prefer my 5dMKII because I prefer full frame really but I accept that it's because I'm weird the 7d would be ideal for most non-weirdos
they have indeed brought out a new 70-200 2.8IS And in most places it's listed at about £2800!!!!! now, the 70-200 2.8IS is my most favourite lens on any camera system, ever. Did I say, ever. Ever ever but even I can't bring myself to pay 2800 for a new one when the old one is utterly brilliant.Originally Posted by britchick, post: 188864
Sadly not too many deals on the old one either because as I say, it's so darn good that they can sell them all without discounting anyway
