Re: Light lens for birding?


I own the 55-300 mm lens and I love it. But for my Job I work with the 60-250 mm - and if I am honest: it is another world! The 60-250 is sharp up to the edges of the photographs - but the 55-300 loses sharpness if you do not look at the center of the picutre (even at f=8.0).

For my privat use the 55-300 is a nice lens and maybe best of its class - but if I would need high end - the 60-250 would be my lens.

What about primes like the 300 mm lens? For birding this would be my favorit.

Best regards
