I need more zoom!
Jun 23, 2013

Just returned from a trip to Teton NP, where the wildlife opportunities were wonderful. My a77 w/Sigma 70-300mm shared the duties with a Panasonic G5 w/100-300mm. I had excellent results with both cameras. However, there were situations where I really needed more zoom and I've been looking into several options.

Right now, the plan is to buy the Sigma 150-500mm. That will give me a considerable jump from the 600mm equiv of the Panasonic and I might enjoy it on my a77. However, I'm wondering if there is a lighter option. I've seen mention of adapters etc that can increase the zoom of my Sigma 70-300mm.  I never paid much attention to these discussions, but now I'm interested.

Is there some adapter, extender, or whatever that will attach to the a77 and my 70-300mm giving me more optical zoom? Thanks!
