Re: Depends on what and where you'll be shooting

Will you be using the telephoto for general wildlife? Birding? Or something else? Will you be shooting in locations that are generally sunny, offering a lot of light to work with?

If you can answer those questions, the choice of which lens to get will become a lot clearer.

A 150-600 offers more versatility, obviously, but it's also bigger/heavier than the primes, which is a consideration if you'll be handholding most of the time.

The F11 primes are slightly more of a niche lens, and they'll be fantastic to work with, as long as you fall into that niche.

Currently, use would be primarily constrained to bright days, but that is likely to change as time goes on. Weight does not matter as much for me, half the time Im seated and I work for the Forest Service so arm strength helps out a bunch for the rest.

Do you have any insight into comparing IQ coming out of these lenses? That would probably be the biggest deciding factor given my usual shooting conditions being well lit.
