I shouldn't have done it.
4 months ago

While on the resent bird outing with William the Bird Whisperer, I was shooting with my Sigma 120-400.  I was happy with my results and living blissfully with what I had.

BUT, I made a terrible mistake.  For a short period of time, I borrowed Williams' Sony 70-400G.

It felt nice, seemed to focus fine and it worked well.

WELL, while reviewing my photos later at home, I started picking out the ones I liked best.  And wouldn't you know it, many of them were taken during the short time I was using the Sony 70-400!

Now, that I have used it I am questioning my lens and if I should upgrade.

If I had only resisted using the 70-400, I would not have know the difference and would have been blissful with my lenses.

Here was a 100% (approx) crop of a Cardinal shot.  This is jpeg straight from the camera.

Now should I take the "blue pill" and stay with the Sigma.

Or take the "red pill" and peel away the matrix, and open my eyes to the reality of the Sony 70-400?  ( Matrix movie reference )

Just one more reason to buy more gear.
