Lenses for Wildlife Photography

Keep your distance while still getting your shot. Telephoto and high-zoom lenses, especially with focal lengths from 200–500 mm, offer the best way to capture animals in all their glory.

See it. Imagine it. Capture it.

The skilled photographer sees a scene, imagines how to capture it as a great photo, and then takes on the technical challenge of composing and capturing the image. Having a variety of lenses gives you the precision tools needed to translate imagination into image.

G Master Lens for Wildlife Photography

Hermis Haridas talks about his experience with G Master Lens

Masai Mara is a paradise for wildlife lovers, which hosts over 95 species of mammals and over 570-recorded species of birds. Masai Mara National Reserve stretches 1,510 sq km. The land not only protect habitats for resident species, but also the wildebeest and zebras that migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya during July through to October.

With so many prey animals like zebras, impalas, topis, buffalos, giraffes, warthogs and other grazing herbivores, Masai Mara is a veritable bonanza for large predators such as lions, cheetahs, leopards, crocodiles and other powerful hunters. Hence, Mara is always a happening place for any wildlife photographer.

The important thing to be taken care by a photographer who visits Mara is the service provider. If you fail to find the best team, your trip is going to be just another regular safari trip. But if you are in the best hands, then you can make magical frames from Mara. That’s what I have experienced from my trips to Masai Mara so far. For me, Masai Mara is my second home. Whenever I get the time, I pack my bag and book my flight to Nairobi.

It was my 16th trip to Masai Mara in the month of December. I was carrying Sony A9, Sony A7R3, Sony RX10 IV, SEL100400GM, SEL70200GM and SEL1635GM. I was so happy to travel light- no more carrying heavy equipment! It was, overall, a different experience. I was so excited and a little nervous as I know I have to handle completely different gears.

The challenge was to create some interesting frames. Masai Mara has been explored by many photographers who have captured beautiful frames. I wanted to experiment by doing something different. So I did some low level photography by approaching near the animal, by keeping a safe distance, using Sony A7R3 and 16-35mm lens. The silent shutter function in the A7R3 helped me get some beautiful pictures without disturbing the animal.

I was experimenting some low light photography using high ISO in my Sony A9 along with Sony 100-400mm GM lens. This combination was simply superb. I just loved the fast focusing and the high fps. The quality of the pictures taken even after the sunset was wonderful. The 20 fps feature and accurate focus tracking is so good, I can now confidently press the shutter, and don’t have to think of losing any frames while some action is happening in the field.
