It's a rough life I see, but I suppose somebody has to live it.

He has free reign to post whatever he wants, so the site could take a bit of a turn while I’m off the grid, and I think that’ll work out just fine.
Be nice to Richard.

Yes!  Have a fantastic trip and that's a sweet kit you are bringing with you.  I'll try to maintain your high standards and not mess up things too badly in your absence ;)

Richard.

I'd be interested to hear how much use you get from the Q given all your other gear.

Wait so you have two 1DXII ?

I think I am going to start a rumor site...

I rented a 2nd one from Canon Canada CPS. I firmly believe you need two identical camera bodies for trips like this for efficiency.

I'll have a day in Arusha for some street and market stuff, which it will get used for. It will get used a fair bit, being that it's my favourite camera ever. I love 28mm.

The Sofort (Instax) will get used daily for a little project I'll be doing with it.

Having just returned from Tanzania I was wishing for my 600 with 1.4 on 7D m2.

I tried the 7D m2 on 200-400 but found (1) I did not have the reach and (2) stacking an external 1.4 w/ the internal 1.4 did not give 100% satisfactory results - more often than not the images were a bit soft.

I would take a small laptop or a tablet/computer that you can download the previous pictures to and have both backup and a larger monitor to view them.

Good luck for your trip: Great experiences & photos & no bites from lions and mosquitos!

Your photo with the zebras makes me hungry for such a journey :)

Starting tomorrow, March 2 at about 6:10PM, I’ll be off to Tanzania for a migration photo safari until March 14th. I’ll be heading there with some very experienced photo friends, so it should be a fantastic trip.</p>
<p>The quality of cell coverage may be lacking or erratic and as such I’ve decided to disconnect from the site while I’m away, I haven’t had an actual vacation from Canon Rumors in the over 10 years that the site has existed. I’m not sure I want to, but I’ll give it a go.</p>
<p><a href="https://www.canonnews.com/">Richard from Canon News</a> has been gracious enough to help keep the site content coming. He has free reign to post whatever he wants, so the site could take a bit of a turn while I’m off the grid, and I think that’ll work out just fine.</p>
<p>Be nice to Richard. As for the forum, our terrific forum administrators will keep doing what they do.</p>
<p>I’ll see you when I see you.</p>
<p>Oh, this is a gear site, so here’s the gear I’m bringing. Everyone has opinions of what to bring, but based on past experiences, this should do me just fine. I still may axe bringing one of the wide angle zooms.</p>
<p><strong>Cameras:</strong></p>
<ul>
<li>Canon EOS-1D X Mark II</li>
<li>Canon EOS-1D X Mark II</li>
<li>Canon EOS 6D Mark II</li>
<li>Leica Q</li>
<li>Leica Sofort</li>
</ul>
<p><strong>Lenses:</strong></p>
<ul>
<li>Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS</li>
<li>Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS</li>
<li>Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS</li>
<li>Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS 1.4x</li>
</ul>
<p><strong>Miscellaneous:</strong></p>
<ul>
<li>Leica Ultravid 8×42</li>
<li>Google Pixel 2 XL</li>
<li>Microsoft Surface Pro</li>
<li>Think Tank Photo Airport Accelerator</li>
</ul>
<span id="pty_trigger"></span>

Have a great time.
Just thinking, with all that gear, you will be exceeding your weight limit.  Hope you took a safari vest.
Enjoy for those of us who can only wish we were there.

Did you consider a longer lens? In Tanzania I have ended up using a 600/4L IS II with 1.4xIII extender a lot, wheras the 200-400 is the king in most other places.
