Sufficient Gear for Wildlife Photography? SANDESH TAMBE

Sandesh, Absolutely, yes, a camera and the two lenses you have are totally sufficient for wildlife and nature photography. The 18-55 gives you semi-wide to short telephoto and the 55-250 gives you all the way out to a fairly major telephoto lens. Based on the camera you mention, the 55-250…

The Canon 600mm F/4 with photographer attached is on the left. On the right is me shooting the Lumix GH3 with a 100-300mm F/4-5.6 lens. In the Micro Four thirds world all lenses are multiplied 2x so the Lumix 100-300 is actually equivalent to a 200-600mm lens. The same long magnification as the massive Canon lens.
