Re: Longer Tele capability and FX V DX

Yes Bobby I am starting to think a used 50-500 might be a useful step forward over the 120-400.  Another affordable option I have spotted is a Sigma 400 F5.6 APO (non macro), this is cheap enough I could keep the Sigma 120-400 to use as my tripod lens from 120 to 300mm.  The 400mm will not be the best prime lens in the world but it is a prime, and will not need a teleconverter other than photgraphing the moon that seem not to show up the damage they do to qualtiy) and would be lighter if I want to walk up a hill to use it.  Also half the price on most of the other options (assuming I do not find a used Tamron 200-500 to try before I buy).
