While I’m mostly happy with the shots I take, I’m thinking about trying to buy something with a longer zoom. Spending thousands to buy a 400mm+ zoom is out of the question - I’m looking at the very cheap end of the market.

A used 2x extender mark ii $269 at MPB Camera. that will give you 400mm at F/5.6

For hockey the reach would work nicely.

A 1.4 extender will give you 280mm at F/4

MPB Camera has a 7 day return policy you have to pay shipping charges on returns ( I look at that as a rental fee if do a return) . They also have a 6 months warranty.

Ps. You can also compare used Prices at B&H photo and KEH Camera.
