Re: Getting to the 500mm range without spending $10K+

If you need 500mm then buy that focal length, surely your budget will stretch to at least a used 500mm F4L IS (MkI).

There are alternatives but it means a cheaper zoom (sigma) or a combo with TCs, and while they are good, they are no substitute for the 500 prime IMO as you're losing stops of light and AF speed.

cheers
