The humble sparrow
Nov 13, 2011

not a loveable bird I know just the BIF part I liked. lens cheapish 300 f/4 with TC and the last shot of a white cheeked bulbul was with 500 f/4 and TC V1, I wouldn't have been able to shoot the sparrow with the 500 mounted on a tripod and even hand held I guess.

Which makes me think why is there no 500 5.6 prime by any one? I guess you could say that Canon/Nikon worry that it will effect the sales of the f/4s but why not Sigma or Tamron make such a lens. May they need approval from other manufacturers to use their mounts and such specs are rejected, I don't know but now that we're going FF with 1dx a 500 5.6 will more and more desirable.
