Third party telephoto lens for wildlife photos
Feb 18, 2014

Hello

I am a Canon and Nikon shooter.

I would love to have a 500mm or a 600 mm telephone for wildlife but these are superexpensive for me.  Renting is an option if I have to.

Has anyone in this community tried a third party 500mm lens for example?

If so which one(s) and how did it perform?

I am interested in using it during an African safari.

Thx.
