  • I would consider the D500, except I'm coming from an A77II (APSC) and an A99 (FF) and I much prefer the full frame images, even cropped. The ISO performance is much better, and a lot of the time ...
  • Created discussion thread D810 compared to d4 for birds/wildlife
    I'm dumping all of my Sony alpha tele lenses and getting a more modern lens for either Nikon or canon. I was strongly considering the 1dx (used price is reasonable) but now I've read an article ...
  • Replied in For sale forum
    Exactly! That's why I'm keeping the A99, 135 ZA, 85ZA, and 16-35. Any particular reason you're going with Nikon instead of Canon? I'm not completely sold on Canon yet, but I'm finding that the ...
  • Created discussion thread 1DX and 500mm with 2X III?
    How does this combo perform with a 2X teleconverter? I've seen a few great sharp photos with the new IS II lens, but how does the original do? Specifically with the 1DX and teleconverters.
  • Created discussion thread Selling my telephoto gear
    Just throwing it out there that I've made my mind up and I'm going to run a dual system setup... I'm going to keep on using my A99 and non telephoto gear. I'm going to keep all my standard zooms, ...
  • Replied in 1DX or D4
    Thanks! I was considering going with a higher mp camera and shorter telephoto. To be honest with you, the Nikon d810 is tempting with 6 fps or 7 in crop mode. But I've been  looking at my photos ...
  • Replied in 1DX or D4
    A99 is full frame, and I love the reach so unless I find a ridiculous good deal on a 500mm, I'm thinking I'll get a 600 with a second telephoto for travel and low light.... maybe a 300 2.8 or the ...
  • Replied in 1DX or D4
    Thanks! I was looking into the lenses and I am tempted for the reason that the stabilized 300, 400, 500, and 600 are quite a bit less used than the Nikon. I'm thinking about the original 600mm f4 ...
  • Replied in Teleconverters
    I'm tempted to go with a 500mm f4 instead of the 600mm, but will I have enough reach with a 1DX? That 100mm seems to make a difference I hear, especially with full frame.
  • Created discussion thread 1DX or D4
    Hey everyone. Looking to get either a 1DX or D4 with a 500mm f4 or 600mm f4 for birds. I already have sony stuff for landscape and portrait and I'll be keeping it, but I'd love a newer AF ...
  • Created discussion thread Prime Supertelephoto question
    What are all of your thoughts on getting the older 500mm f4, 600mm f4, or 400mm 2.8 plus teleconverters? I want to do birds and wildlife, no sports. I also found a decent price on the 1Dx, so that ...
  • The Sony doesn't measure as sharp (DXOmark) . Also, even though it is WAY more than the Nikon and Canon, it lacks optical stabilization... And the Sony teleconverters are carry overs from the ...
  • That is a good point. I really don't want to switch all my stuff as I actually like the sony lenses I own, and I have a pretty big investment in them already. But there is no reasonably priced ...
  • I'll keep that in mind. But I don't think I can go from 840mm 5.6 back to 400 5.6. I see your point though.
  • I have an A77II and an A99. I'd be selling the A77II body as well (as I only use it for telephoto). The A77II works very well with the lenses, but I really want a faster focusing and quiet 600mm ...
  • If someone sends me a Canon 600mm IS II, i'll give you my 600 and 300 :D
  • I was thinking about going with a crop sensor maybe, a 7DII, or possibly even a 1D mark IV. As nice as the 100-400 seems to be, the (old) prime lenses that I have are addicting and with the price ...
  • Looking for some advice here... I'm seriously considering switching some of my equipment. I currently have the Sony A99 full frame DSLR and some great lenses like the Sigma ART 35 and 50, as well ...
  • Hey, yes I think I read about how you got your 400mm, and I am pretty sure the same fellow owned both. Actually I followed some earlier advice and removed filters and reshot some microfocus adjust ...
  • Created discussion thread My Minolta 600mm F4 soft wide open
    Hey all, I have both a Minolta 600mm F4 and a Sigma 500mm F4.5. I have microfocus adjusted both lenses with and without 1.4 and 1.7 teleconverters. Here are my findings: Wide open, the Sigma is ...
