400mm 5.6 alternative
Nov 30, 2009

I would like to get into taking pictures of birds and have pondered if I wanted to spend $1200 for a Canon 400mm f5.6 lens.

I know it is one of the best for birding and I know that the AF is fast and accurate, but is there a cheaper alternative that is very good (maybe not great like the 400mm) for someone that does not have that kind of cash?

Thanks for your help!
