im in the market for either a 500mm or 600mm canon lens, but im still looking into which is the best option for me. I have had a chance to try out a 500mm, but i dont have access to a 600 to try it out or get a feel for the size difference. I know its heavier, but im looking for some pictures of these two lenses next to each other so i can really see the size difference... i came across photos exactly like these a while back, but i cant remember which forums and site i found them on..if anyone here can point me to some, or actually has both of these lenses and wouldnt mind taking a few pics of them that would be very helpful!
I have a quick question im just looking for some input to help sway my decision...
i have a 5D body, and am trying to work out if i should just grab a 600 + 1.4x for it, OR, get a 500mm which is a little easier to work with, but pick up a second 1.6x crop body (like a 40D body) and 1.4x to use to get that extra reach when i need it..
this seems like a better option as i can switch bodys/add t.c to get more or less reach, and i dont have to spend as much on a tripod/head setup for the 600..
just looking for some input. thanks
