Re: Which Lens should I use?

One thing is for sure ... most people find themselves wanting to upgrade to better lenses after they buy a mediocre one so I suggest that if you're going to spend hundreds or over a 1k for a lens to spend a few hundred more and get something that will perform well and keep you satisfied for longer.

I have a Tamron SP 150-600 mm f/5-6.3 DI VC USD and it takes some good pictures but it could be better. If I had it to do again I would've spent more on the G2 model. Also, you do not have to use a tripod or monopod with a 600mm lens, I do it handheld all the time, 98% of the time. Many others do as well. You just have to be good at holding it steady. Research your choices well and get one that suits your needs.
