    Great photos. I know you have a few of the 4/3 lenses so was curious what lenses you took on the trip.

    We had all lenses, we currently have, with us: ZD 300mm 2.8, ZD 150mm 2.0, ZD 14-35mm 2.0, mZD 40-150mm 2.8, mZD 45mm 1.8, mZD 60mm 2.8, mZD 9-18m 4.0-5.6 plus the converters.

    For the animal enclosures - of course - ZD 300mm 2.8, ZD 150mm 2.0 as well as mZD 40-150mm 2.8 were the best choice in combination with the converters since the enclosures are comparably large.

    For hiking small gear, as there are for example mZD 9-18m 4.0-5.6, mZD 40-150mm and 2.8 mZD 60mm 2.8, met our aims perfectly.

    Best regards,
    Alex

    Wow, great shots! The variety of wild life you saw is amazing. The wildcat in the tree seems like one of those once in a lifetime photo ops.

    Please don't get me wrong: these animal shots were done at Lusen National Park Centre where you can find animal enclosures as for example rescue/breeding stations. These are the biggest and best enclosures (from zoological as well as photographical point of view), I have ever seen up to now. Nevertheless, I highly respect the real wildlife photographers and what I'm doing here is a completely different story. I will add a remark in the intial post.

    Best regards,
    Alex
