Sigma 400mm f5.6 lens
6 months ago

I am getting a Sigma K-mount 400mm f5.6 lens. I plan to use it for wildlife photography - mostly birds I guess.It is supposed to be good quality even fully open. I guess I will find out!

I will be using it with a K-30. Given the size and weight of the lens, I know that I will need a tripod.

Does anybody on this forum own this lens, or has used one? Any tips/tricks/pointers? I have reviewed some of the comments in the pentaxforums site.

Has anybody used it with a teleconverter?

Thanks,

JawaT
