Got Sigma lens;NEED HELP - is it right for me...which Canon camera etc
Sep 8, 2009

My brother intends to give me a lens (Sigma 70-300 lens F4 - 5.6 APO Macro) Super as his "Old Canon EOS 50E" got damaged and he doesn't find use for the lens any more.

I primarily shoot wildlife and birds and currently with a Prosumer superzoom. My thought was to go for a APS-C format new Canon body and use this lens with a 1.4x or a 2x TC to enhance reach (which might result in slowing it down)

My questions:
1) Is this lens good for my needs (with a TC to enhance reach)?
2) If yes, which Canon body do I go for?

I'm on a budget and need some help and advice.

Thanks in advance.
