Re: Torn between Min 500mm Reflex and Min 100-400mm APO

I owned the 500mmf8 reflex for a short time, and I mean a short time.  My shots have absolutely no deatail to them.  Don't know if I had a bad one, but the 24mp sensor appears to far "outresolve" the lens.  I got better results using the "beercan" and cropping than using the 500mm.  Have switched to the Tamron 70-300mm USD and saving for the Sony 70-400mm.  For the same money, I would try the Minolta 100-400 over the reflex.
