Re: Sigma 50-500 v 150-500 v Nikon 80-400?

I use the Nikon AF-S 80-400 G on my D5200 for birds in flight and get great results using back button focus and tracking coupled together with shutter release only.

It's also more than ok for 'tele' landscapes on both my cameras (D5200 and D800e).

Cannot comment about the Sigma lenses.

See this evaluation from a 'pro' wildlife photog.........

I bought this lens on this and several other reviews and have no regrets.


on edit, I really do not feel the need to validate my lens purchases. I sell stuff that does not work for me.
