Fantastic camera bundle you have there B.B. especially having a Canon 75-300 lens. \O \O

We wish you many happy hours of snapping away and good luck in Kruger.

Well, in the past couple of years I'wve managed to upgrade my kit and still not fully happy but will do for the next few months.

Bodies:
2x Nikon D90 both with power packs
1x Nikon D800E with power pack

Lenses:
Nikon 85mm f/1.8D
Nikon 105mm f/2.8G
Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5D
Sigma 300mm f/2.8
Nikon 18-135mm

Flash:
Nikon SB600
Nikon R1-C1

Converters:
Sigma 2X
Sigma 1.4X
Nikon 1.7X

Waiting delivery of new extension tubes for macro and Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G.
Thinking about changing my 80-400mm D version with the new G version but I'm happy with mine and will have to think hard about it.

Still haven't had a good chance to use my new D800E but will be doing so in a couple of weeks.

Loads of memory so no problem on quantity of pictures to take. 0()

Received my new Nikon 70-200 mm 2.8 and wow! Amazing piece of glass and must say really impressed my quality.

Also added a Nikon Macro extension tube which should help me with my macro/micro photography.

Just over 7 weeks to go before I can start clicking away.
Will start writing about:
1) Monkeys in your garden
2) Following the wildebeests
3) Sand and ?????

You just have to wait. :-0
