Thank you very much for all your input guys!
I am indeed an amateur at this, and as DSLR, we have a Canon 550D equipped with Wide Angle, Zoom-in and Macro lenses. My girlfriend loves photography, though, and she will be using it most of the time.
On the other hand, I found it extremely hard to use for movie shots last year when we went to Uganda and Rwanda, primarily because of the weight of the lenses, and also because I could not control the zoom/ maneuver the camera easily without make the film look totally clumsy (this might, of course, have happened because I am a beginner :P ).
I will check the FZ200 and the tele extender as back-up. Both options by Bill seem to be similar price wise.
And I can see that, comparing the HC-V720 and FZ200 equipped with the LX7, the latter option is the best.
Would it be different if I said that there will be game drives by dawn, where light will be very low? Or, in other words, in low-light conditions, would the FZ200 be ahead of the HC-V720?
