Long telephoto lens for D3x
Aug 16, 2010

Hi! Looking for opinions on a long telephoto for a D3x. I would use it only 4 to 5 times a year so the 500mm prime Nikkor is a bit expensive.

What do people think of the Sigma 500 prime, or even their 50-500mm zoom. Not particularly suited to full frame I guess, but for occasional use...?
Any suggestions welcome.
I currently have 24-70, 70-200 and the 105mm Micro.
Subject matter for the long lens would be birds, dolphins and whales.
Many thanks,
I
