D5100 and Sigma 120-400: a decent combination.

Hello all,

I finally happened to purchase a used Sigma 120-400mm for my D5100. As you can see all my purchases try keeping "the church in the middle" as we say. (Meaning it's a compromise between efforts, costs and results.)

As far as it concerns the results I am very pleased with the 120-400. It comforts my needs quite well and to let you judge I added some shots and the link for more images in my gallery.

All the images are shot in the late afternoon in nature reserve "Hoge Veluwe" near Arnhem, Netherlands. Camera on tripod, Shutter priority, AF on, OS off, ISO set on 200 (with Auto-ISO-adjust to max 800).

Feel free to let me know what you think.
