Hullo from Australia,

Yet another dilemma!! I have a Nikon D7000 and a D5100, both functioning well!!

Now I have a variety of lenses, 18-200VR, Tokina Fish eye, 50mm Nikon G etc....!

I also have two Sigma lenses...an 18-250mm OS HSM and an 150-500mm HSM OS.

Recently I was shown by a local birding man his Canon 300mm pics.......I was most impressed with what a good prime will do!

His detail was miles ahead of my output from the 150-500 Sigma. He has a 1.4 TC as well.

So, I have been thinking seriously of selling the big Sigma...it's heavy and bulky and hard to get BIF's in shot. My old Nikon 70-300mm VR produced far better output!!

I am currently looking at the Nikkor F4 f/4 ED -IF Auto Focus lens. I have read almost every review printed and am about to take to take the leap!!

The Nikon is far from cheap here in Australia...new around $1300 A.

(There are a couple of good new new ones on US eBAY for approx $900 US)

Anyone have a view of the two lenses...Sigma 150-500 OS and the Nikon 300mm??
