Thank you for our inspiring and rare bird filled safari Simon. I love my 80×400 but after seeing these images am feeling excited about trying out the 200×400. Instead of buying it I believe a test drive at Londolozi with it would be prudent. See you in January 2016!

I was fortunate enough to try this lens while we had game drives with Simon and Foster 🙂 during last Xmas.
It’s a great opportunity to rent them, I just mentioned during breakfast that I’d like to try the nikon 200-400 and and I received it during lunch delivered by Kate. I used two body, so I had a chance to catch closer moments too, but with the 400 end this lens still laser sharp and extremely fast. I would never carry cross the world a 4 kg lens if I can rent it on site. Hope we can be back soon! Great sightings there !

Simon, these are stunning indeed, but I have never had a problem with your photies with your “normal” lens 🙂 The Sunset, your fave tree & the Coqui are lovely, as they all are. I see your point of being further away, everyone is more at ease 🙂 Thanks as always for sharing.

Beautiful images Simon, I especially love the tree shot! It would be great to try out this lens the next time I’m at Londolozi. Being able to rent a lens that might otherwise be too expensive to afford, is such a great advantage.
