    What kind of lenses/lens do you bring? I think it might be kinda awkward to bring a canon L lens (big distraction) to a zoo. Maybe a 75-300 since its pretty small compared to L zoom lenses...[​IMG]

    So won't you feel silly when you get there and everyone has a big white L and you don't? I'm a member of San Diego Zoo and also the Safari Park. L's and big Nikon lenses are very common, as are tripods and Monopods

    I normally use my 70-300 however I have been known to take my 150-500 if there was something special I wanted. Inside (aquarium, reptiles, etc.) I use my 17-70 with an off-camera flash using a control cord.

    Take the big lens. If you don't you will later wish you had.
