600 euros, absolutely! it's a bargain, i paid about twice that for mine a couple of years ago and it's a workhorse. Heavy and big but with pretty fast AF and sharp looking photos from it, it's all worth it.

Love those photo’s!
You know if the lens works with extenders? Like the new type iii from canon?

IMHO, a 560/800mm lens without image stabilization its quite difficult to use.. ofc you can shoot at 1000s for freezing action, yet the angle of view is so narrow, and the image will jump so much in ur viewfinder that even framing will be challenging. maybe proper technique and tripod may help :)

Thank you very much! :) yes it works just fine with both Canon extenders and other third party extenders. I get crisp results with a old Canon 1,4x II and a crappy cheap third party 2x extender.

It's not difficult to shoot at 560 or 800mm with this old lens, i do it all the time both sports, action, concerts, wildlife and much more. It works great and as long as you know the lens well you can shoot anything with it. Obviously using a monopod to keep it stable and good timing.
