You should use a mono-pod as well. Carrying a tripod is very awkward in crowds (some places do not allow) unless very compact but mono-pods can be like carrying a handle on cam, may save from having to use a higher ISO and IS are NOT perfect especially at 250mm.

This lens is optically good, all reports being better than the non STM version even II version, the bokoh is not great/busy so keep that in mind at zoo (fill frame w/ subject), set f# for what you want.


Thank you. Its a great idea. What is "bokoh"? I will look for some good options in Mono pod. Can you suggest me one?

Anything made by Manfrotto will be the least expensive for the quality option. (I didn't say cheap. )
