Re: Help me choose Sigma 15-500 or Sigma 70-200 OS + 2x Ext

In my quest to choose between 2, a third option has been presented!
The Bigma 50-500!

Nevertheless looking back I have rarely used my 135-400 outside Africa.
Although this years visit to Africa will not be the last, I am very attracted having a faster & 70-200 lens at home.

In the mean time I have found the following:

So I now tend towards the Sigma 70-200 + 2x extender because:

  • In all my tours to Africa the 400mm proved to be enough
  • Compared to my 18-200 I will have a faster and sharper lens which I will also be using at home.
  • I'm just an enthusiast, not earning money with my pictures nor earning enough to spend more.

Many thanks for the reactions so far.

Has anyone other examples of the Sigma 70-200 with a 2x extender on 200mm?

And of course, other suggestions are welcome as well
