Re: Torn between Min 500mm Reflex and Min 100-400mm APO

I'm a big fan of the 500mm AF Reflex.  It's my birding lens, and it's the only reason I own a Sony.  I put it on my old A700 and stick it in the shoulder bag I'd be carrying to work anyway.

(On a stroll through Central Park this morning;  hand-held, straight of the camera.)

Yeah, terrible bokeh, whatever.  It takes some getting used to, like any super-telephoto. Expect to take about a thousand shots with it before you get comfortable.  Worth it.
