What lenses for wildlife?
I use the one thats on the camera. Sometimes you just have to crop a little more.
Very fine work, Dave. You aptly prove that it is not the lens itself so much as the photographer.
I use a 2.0x telephoto and 0.7x wide angle.along with polarizing filters and neutral density filters for my sony mavica
Because of $$ I'm leaning toward getting a sigma 300 2.8 zoom "low light sports" & later putting a TC on it for nature.
Any thoughts on this would be great. thanks.
Anyone hear anything about the Sigma 135-400mm f/4.5-5.6 DG APO Aspherical AutoFocus Telephoto Zoom Lens?
I really need to upgrade my crappy Quantarary 75-300 f/4-5.6 and was wondering if this was worth the investment. I don't have a lot of money. I can't see how a lot of you have these amazing lens. some of these lenses cost more than both of my cars combined. i wish i could afford something nicer but in reality i can't. just trying to get the most bang for my buck. i really love shooting birds and wildlife and my lens just isn't cutting it. is this the lens for me or can someone recommend something better in the $500-$600 price range? Thanks for your time.
or better yet, since i have only read not so good things about this lens i found very nice reviews and many of them about this lenSigma 50-500mm f/4-6.3 APO EX RF HSM Lens. Anyone use or hear of anything about it?

Check out Big Al's Bigma pics, one page back. Bigma is the affectionate nickname for the 50-500 Sigma. Great lens!! Works best in good light and is a bit on the heavy side. But as Big Al's pics show. With good light it is a great lens It doesn't work well with a TC, but on a 1.5/1,6 camera you get close to 800mms. Not bad for a bit over $100 per 100mms
Deleted great photos. sorry.
Do a search on Bigma and you will find many decent pics and good feedback.
thanks for all the info, links and pics. i read in one of the links that it was in the sub 850 range. where would this be? i can only find it for $999. is that because the new release of it has the DG?
Anyone using the Canon 100-400 IS USM L ?? its possibly my next purchase so any comments positive or negative would be appreciated
