Looking at getting a long lens again - in hindsight I probably shouldn't have sold my 100-400L (especially now the prices have shot up).
I recognise that most of the time you get what you pay for, but I'm no pro, so maybe the more affordable lenses will be just fine for occasional airshow/motorsport use, maybe a bit of wildlife. It won't be a main lens - I tend to use my 24-105 and 70-200 f4IS most of the time.
Sigma seem to have a few long ones that seem to overlap, hence some confusion on my part.
Was looking at:
- sigma 120-400 OS
- sigma 150-500 OS
- sigma 50-500 (not OS but EX glass)
- Canon 100-400 L IS
any others in that kind of range? Could people that have owned one or more give their comments? I'm trying to get an idea of price Vs performance. The canon is a lot more than any of the sigmas. The 150-500 OS is about half the price, only about half a stop slower on the long end, but 100mm longer.
