#2. "RE: Lens Question for Birds in Flight"
In response to In response to 1


Nampa, US
          

Thanks, Dave.

Any thoughts on the Sigma 120-400, or is f/5.6 still a no-go for occasional handheld due to the inability to shoot with a fast enough shutter speed? The longest f/2.8 lens that I ever shot with was the 70-200 Nikon with the 1.4TC, which worked good for minor league baseball (on the field of play) but doubt that the reach would be enough for birds in flight?

The 120-300/f2.8 OS Sigma might be stretching my bank a little on the thin side, unless I shed some other toys. Quick question about it, though: any thoughts on how it would do for landscape?

Thansk again,
Larry
