I think that article supports my idea to sell the Sigma 300 and find a used Canon 500. :cool:

As well as Reno Air Races for me this weekend.

Awesome read. Shared with a coworker who disagreed on some points (kit lenses vs pro lenses), noob...

I was a little surprised to hear that 500mm is his go to prime, I figured most people grab a 300 or 400 and a TC for when needed

You would be surprised how versatile a 500 can be.

Most of the hard card IMSA guys use either a 500mm or 600mm lens as their prime lens.


Your camera is alot smarter than the "M" Zealots would have you believe
