  1. Hello,

    I am moving to tanzania in July. I will be living ind the city of Dar es Salaam but will look forward to going on a few safaris.

    I am taking my canon 7d; canon 5d mark iv. my lenses are 17- 50 is, the 50 mm 1.8 and my 70-200 II 2.8.

    I can not afford a lot. I can get a 24-70 II for a decent price. so this is what I was thinking:

    I was thinking of getting a canon extender to give my 70 200 more range on my 7d while using the 24 - 70 for a walk around and landscapes.

    I would clearly like to have a 16-35 and 200- 400 but cost is a factor and i think the 24-70 and extender might give me more options.

    I would appreciate any thoughts .

  2. Try get 1.4 or 2 converter. 70-200 on 7D equal 300/2.8. When I was there 30 something years ago, it was really hot:)
    Good luck, share some picks later.
