Re: Sigma 120-300/400 for birding

What's your camera? Canon has a reasonably priced 400mm f/5.6L (non-image-stabilized) with very snappy autofocus, and a very nice( but slightly less speedy autofocus ) 300mm f/4 (previous generation stabilization). I can't help with Nikon.

How good is your camera's high-ISO performance? You may do very well with a not-too-wide aperture (f/4.5-f/6.3) if you have good high-ISO performance.
