I'm new to Nikonian. I'm a 5' 1" 60 yr old woman who has just injured my neck and won't be able to carry, even using a cotton carrier, a D600 with 80-400mm lens while doing the 2-day walking safari in Zambia. I would appreciate recommendations for a lightweight quality camera to carry along with my binoculars. I use an Op Tech harness for the binoculars and might be able to handle a dual harness. The D600 will be my main setup in the jeep and canoeing part ( my husband will paddle) of the safari. I can't imagine being without a camera while I walk. I do have the lightweight 70-300mm lens which I could use, but this still might be too heavy for me.

I've been reading the posts about a mirrorless camera and meet someone this weekend using one for street photography - the person raved about it - so lightweight. Would any of these camera work for me? lens? If not, any other ideas? Without spending a fortune.


Thanks in advance.
Lynn
