I'm trying to figure out if there's a huge difference in photo's between the 500 F4IS & 600 F4IS? Who uses one or both of these and why?
I've seen alot of photo's taken with the 500 but not the 600.
I would be using one of these for bird photography, animals & such and just need to know the differences besides MONEY! :)

Ummm, besides money....? 100mm....

I think the IQ is about the same on both.

Big difference in price, weight. Do you always want to use a tripod? Would you like to handhold it once in a while?

I would buy the 500mm. Hand holding it once in a while and less weight would be the deciding factors with me. Also, the extra cash in my pocket is always big plus. Are you leaning towards either?
