I'm a total newbie moving up from point and click. I'm thinking of getting one of these for an African safari in July. I'm going to take it on another trip in March when I can do a class and do nothing but practice over spring break. I'll have more practice time all of June and half of July. I'm most concerned about being able to take pics in low light and at some distance as there is a waterhole (sorry don't have Exact distance), in viewing distance from my lodge. I know it's not super close. Any advice? Should I move up to a more advanced model? I'm thinking this one will handle it all.
