Re: Thanks! Would 500mm with built-in stabilization be better?

IMO the Bigma is better than any 10x zoom has a right to be.

Somewhere between decent 70-300 consumer zoom and pro prime sort of halfway house

That's definitely good to hear. I had some trouble pulling the trigger on that lens. It's not an APO refractor telescope like you would use for astrophotography. It sounds like it is a bit much for a "walk around" lens. I like wildlife and the occasional moon or sun shot, though. Hopefully it will work well for the upcoming Venus transit.
