This is my first post here, any help would be greatly appreciated. I am a Nikon user. My friend Janet Zinn has posted here asking some of the same questions, however, my lens arsenal is a bit different. From following the replies to her post about which lenses to bring, almost everyone suggested leaving the 200-500 lens at home. My original thoughts on what to bring are this: 14-24, 24-120, 70-200, 200-500 & 600E the newer lighter one. I'd also bring a D750 and D500 bodies.
I'm wondering if having the 24-120 and 70-200 is overkill, should I leave the 70-200 at home? Would I miss anything by not bringing the 70-200? If I leave the 200-500 home I could bring a 300f4 fresnel, 300 on the FX body and 450 on the DX body. I'm a little concerned about weight but more concerned about not having the right lens for the shot. I tend to overpack camera gear.
First part of the trip is Namibia and I expect to use the 14-24 and 24-120 quite a bit. Next is Botswana and we'll on a boat on the Chobe river over a few days, do you think the 300 will be enough along with the 600, my original thought was to have the 200-500 on the D750 and the 600 on the D500. I will have gaps between the 120 and 200, nothing 200 and 300 and nothing between 300 and 600. I think I need a 14-600 f2.8-4 all in one lens and a sherpa to help carry it LOL.
All suggestions are welcome. Thank You,
