Still really hoping to get the Sigma 150-500mm lens, but think I will have to get it on finance if I ever do.

Can anyone recommend anywhere that does this lens with finance? I know Jessops do but they are stupidly expensive and never have what I want in stock..

Cheers

Don't think you will regret it robcourt the optical stabiliser is a big help with handholding such a heavy lens

Cheers, they're both pretty sharp for handheld shots. As i will be using it handheld pretty exclusively i was erring more towards the 120-400 but will look closely at the longer one now!

Both taken at f/8, yes the second shot is a bit grainier as i had the camera on 800iso while trying to get a decent shot of a otter.
The first shot i had then adjusted my iso to 200 as there was plenty of light on the swan.
Both were taken at 500mm, the sigma 150-500 is a brilliant lens for the money

nice pics of the swan, the first is very sharp. Were they taken handheld and what FL were they? Reason i ask is that i'm thinking of getting the 120-400 or the 150-500 soon!

Exposure and white balance can be a bit of a personal choice with white.
Heres another shot
Back off

Nice shot mate. I have made a new year’s res never to photograph anything white ever again, includes flowers always screw up the exposure.
