Re: Advice on new lens for wildlife photography


Here is a post of mine from a couple of years ago that may be of some help...

If I go out on my own I take D750 and Sigma 150-600 C.

My partner and I often go out together,

I take D750 and Nikon 200-500.

She takes D7200 and Sigma 150-600 C.

She finds the 200-500 uncomfortable, but the 150-600 is fine.

I think the most important thing to take away from the tests I did is "Would the gear you use make the difference between a good photo and a bad one?"

Best of luck with your decision.


PS. In the UK we have several reputable store that sell used equipment, this may be a way of increasing your options.

Photography is all about light.
Cameras and lenses are all about compromise.
Image quality is all about viewing distance.
Great photos are made by great photographers, not by great cameras.
