I have a Canon 7D with a 300/1.4. Heavy, which makes for problems on some trips like Africa. But, that setup is my camera and binos. It's how I spot birds and ID them most often. For Christmas I got an Olympus Tough that is primarily for snorkeling. But, it has done wonderful settings and process quality sunsets and scenery. But, in order to get great detail pictures of animals I think you'll need a big lens.

> Hey Tweets, wondered what you would recommend for a good easy to carry camera for travel. I have a Lumix 25-600 which does okay but for multiple shots is slow. I also have a Canon EOS Rebel T2i with lots of lenses but it is cumbersome. It does great but I'm thinking lighter weight would be better for travel but need something with good quality for shooting birds and such.
