Re: Wildlife photography

have you considered the weight and size difference ?

For example , your Sigma 100-400mm is 1160g, the Nikon 200-500mm without the tripod collar is 2090g.

I find , walking about, my 1200g or so Tamron 200-500mm to be already a bit of a pain and that is why I did not bother looking at the 2kg something lenses.

This is a size comparison between the 100-400mm and the 150-600mm Sigma

I am not discouraging you from looking at the longer lenses but pointing out something that may not have been considered.

( yesterday I met a birder using one of the Sony RX10. He also has a Pana 230 (bridge camera) as well as a Nikon with a 200-500mm. To him they all have some limitations , it just happens that yesterday he opted for the Sony)
