Your shots look really nice, particularly the last.

thanks.

Maybe this would be a good option for me.

It is an option.

Most likely will not AF as fast as the Z lens, nor any weather sealing..but there are plenty of folks using this (and the Tamron 100-400) with good results.

Plus the price. I only paid $475 for this, in mint condition.

That’s a nice price,

Indeed.

I’m seeing some on mpb.com for $569.00 which is a lot less than new but I have to decide if the extra 100mm is worth it over my good 70-300 afp.

I was contemplating this for a few years now .

I was fine with the AF-P 70-300mm lens. Was also fine with the Z 50-250mm lens.

I have both, but still wanted a bit more reach...just didn't want the extra size/weight ..and the Z 100-400mm is about a pound heavier, which is too heavy for me to handhold. Even this Sigma is a bit too much for me. It fits in the camera bag, so it will come along, and I really like the I.Q. wide open.

Or, do I jump up to a used 200-500? I will use it with my V1s also.

I also considered that lens, some years ago, but that was before a rotator cuff tear on my right arm. Plus to go from 200mm to 500mm..takes a few turns of the zoom

Yikes!!

Not sure if one can Push/Pull zoom on that lens, as with the Sigma.

Then there's the Sigma 150-600mm lens
