150-500 v 120-400?
Jun 14, 2012

I have a Canon 600d & am looking at these 2 lenses for long distance shooting. Which gives the better IQ at the max focal range, & which is ok to use occasionally handheld.I believe both have stabilization systems, do both use the same system? I am not buying Canon as they are just too expensive & I believe the 2 Sigmas are my best alternative. I have both tripod & monopod & realise they will be used most of the time, but I want to be able to shoot handheld whenever possible. I can get the 120-400 for £650 & the 150-500 for £800. I already have the Canon 55-250 kit lens, I just want that extra reach. Thanks in advance for any help you all can give. lee uk
