500 the way to go for birding?
Jan 13, 2010

The latest issue of Audubon Magazine shows the winners of it's bird photography contest. I was amazed to see how many used the 500 f4 and usually with a 1.4 extender. Tell me I don't need the 500. Not only is it expensive but also damn heavy (I rented it once but didn't have a tripod and gimbal head).
