Re: Which manual long lens ?

Thank you all for your helpful suggestions.

Bottomline: Canon + 2x combo offers two focal lengths: 200mm (w/o extender) and 400mm (with extender), albeit a bigger and heavier package.

At 400mm, the Tokina will offer a smaller package than the Canon + 2x extender, but you have only the 400mm to play with.

Since I will use it mostly for birds, I should go for the Tokina I think, the smaller
and lighter package.

Thanks LincolnB for sharing the pics. Great pics from Digitalsparrow with comparison
of the lenses.
Hi Danny, good suggestion, but presently Canon FD 300 f4L are available on ebay
way over my budget. But I may have to wait for sometime and save more for this
great lens. Thanks.
