Thanks ill keep that one in mind.. does that have any sort of stabilization though.. i guess if you keep still it should still take a decent shot?

Yes it is stabilised. The OS in the description is Sigma's designation for stabilization. There are two versions. The Sports version is $1800 new. The Contemporary version which I believe is smaller and lighter goes for around $1, 000 new. Even used, both versions are going to be out of your current lens budget, although the Contemporary model may be relatively close.

Yep it looks like the contemporary is close, though i dont need at the moment (i think around $500-$600 used, which is about the max for me per lens.. i blew the overall budget for now by 2x haha).

Side question related to the canon in general..

Is it common to end up with cr2 files that have say 3-6 white/red pixels.. those become crosses when converted to jpg ala compression i think. I ran into this yesterday with some 50mm test shots (it wasnt the lens i know that much and i dont think the camera/sensor is bad either).. i ran the manual clean 30sec x 3 remap sensor, they havent re-appeared..

I'm just assuming this can happen from time to time, maybe necessary to do the remap every so often to avoid this? (most couldnt be seen unless viewed on a 4k set or zooming in a few rolls of the mouse)


Canon 6D + Rokino EF 14mm f2.8 + Canon EF 50mm f1.8 STM + Tamron EF 28-75 f2.8 XR Di LD SP Asph (IF) + Tamron EF 28-300 Di VC PZD Japan f/3.5-6.3 + Celestron 8SE + ZWO ASI 224 Cmos Cam

Both Sigma lenses I mentioned are pre-Sports and Contemporary releases and can be had for prices around 600-900 used. That's why I mentioned that the prices are becoming more attractive on them now that the Contemporary and Sports models have been released.
This is a link to the 150-500 I mentioned.

Yep I think we're on the same page. If I recall the OP was budgeting for 3 used lenses at around $150 each and I and others suggested using that approx. $450 towards a single lens of better quality and utility. The OP also seems to be interested in zoom lenses with a wider focal range and was considering the Tamron 18-400mm before he realized it was a crop sensor design. We can only provide suggestions for a variety of options. In the end the OP needs to determine what works best for him.
