I am a member of a bird watching group. I also love to photograph birds. I own a Nikon D5200 dslr, but presently I am unable to shed a heavy amount on lenses. I find quite a few member of my group use 80-400 or 150-600 lenses. But those lenses are at present too costly for me to afford. Also, they require, as I see, tripod or monopod. For a hand held shot, I find that 70-300 f4-5.6 is a reasonable option for me. While I accept the difference between "photographying birds" and "bird...

Hi, I realised that I need more than 300mm reach, when shooting kids soccer games outdoor. 300 has been enough up until now, but last weekend I realised that they're getting older and now starts to play on larger fields, so I feel the need for 400 (but so far not more). I'm currently using either my AF-S VR 70-300/4,5-5,6 G IF-ED + D700 or 70-200F4 + Sony APS-C. Since I wan't to keep weight at a minimum, I'm hesitating to get the 200-500 especially since I don't need more than 400 and when a...

I presently have a D750 and a D7100. I am considering selling the D7100 and getting a D500. I love the D750 with my Nikon 80-400mm AFS  lens for its fast autofocus for BIFs, but want a bit more reach. The 80-400 on my D7100 gives me the additional reach, but at the sacrifice of slower autofocus speed and small buffer.  Does anyone have any experience with a D750 and a D500 using a Nikon a 80-400 mm AFS lens insofar as autofocus speed acquisition and accuracy is concerned? I normally shoot...

Hello, I want to buy a 80-400mm mainly for landscape. I'm not intersting at all about electronique stuff like : AF speed, VR performance, silent AF... What what interested me most is sharpness, lens flare and image quality. i want to know if the newest af-s 80-400mm is superior or both lens are close thank you

I do some sports photography (mostly sailing) and often shoot with my Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 zoom.  A year or so ago I purchased the Nikon 80-400 f/4.5-5.6.  After a year it was a little sloppy and fuzzy so it went back to Nikon for a tune-up and now it's performing quite well.   I recently decided to try a prime lens on the assumption that it would be sharper than the zoom, so I rented the 300mm f/4 lens and gave it a shot.  I took a whole bunch of comparison shots, with both a Df and a D800,...

Planing phase on rebuilding my action (aviation - motorsports) setup after had everything stolen some months ago. I was working with 200-400 VR1, TC-14E II & D7100 / D800E. Unfortunately i think i cant invest, (not yet at least) this amount of money so fast, while though i need to have a similar performance system ready for the new season of my action projects starting at spring. I am speculating if image quality, AF accuracy , consistency and speed, is equal between Sigma 150-600 (probably...

I'm non-pro, obviously, and have a D800E which I'm slowly growing into - I come from having fallen for photography with the GF1 and M43rds. Once I started to bump up against the (then) limits of the system I then took the somewhat nuts step of going hardcore FF with the D800E... Right now, I have the Nikon 50mm 1.8, Nikon 85mm 1.8 and Sigma 35mm. I chose primes partly to not overwhelm myself with all the options at once, partly for weight, partly for quality/cost. I've tended to concentrate...

Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I want to get a tele lens for shooting the full moon and also air show or sports. I am trying to decide between this two lenses and was wondering who choose which lens and why. So far I can see: NIKON 80-400mm VR (new model): * Possibly sharper, need feedback on that. * Shorter and less wider range than Sigma 50-500mm * Double the price of Sigma * Lighter than Sigma * Nikon lens (Possibly better QC) * Better Stabilisation (Not sure) Sigma 50-500mm OS: *...
