Re: Does AF work with small aperture lenses (Sigma 150-500)

Thanks again guys for your advice. I bought the lens yesterday. Park Cameras did not expect a Nikon fit lens back in stock whilst the sale price lasted, but SRS Microsystems, in Watford which is local to me, had the lens for £24 more, which is about what I would have spent driving to Park Cameras. (SRS also had the Hoya HMC UV protective filter I wanted for it at a very competitive price.) I tried the autofocus in Watford High Street on an overcast English winter’s day, and it worked fine provided the target in the focus point had reasonable contrast.

I’ve also bought an ML-L3 remote controller to work the shutter without shaking the camera.
