That is impressively sharp and well exposed. Nice one

Do you find your sigma 170-500 creeps when you carry it around? I had that lenses for a few months and sold it as I was not a big fan of it.

Re: Sigma 170 500 in a field

Yup ...my thought EXACTLY! Also the IS version can take a converter while I had no luck with the 170-500 with a sigma converter. For a budget guy like me....Sigma is the only way to go if I want that kinda reach.
Also, I was not super happy with the COLOR from the 170-500 lens.

Re: Sigma 170 500 in a field

If you want to go down that route I can recommend the 150-500 Sigma with IS. IT is a bit heavy as you would expect but with IS you can still hand hold it OK. The Trinidad birds I posted recently were all taken with it and about 50% of these were hand held. Particularly the hummingbirds.

Re: Sigma 170 500 in a field

Awesome thanks for the tip AQ I am definitely saving up for the IS version. Shooting on a tripod can be a real pain in the butt sometimes so to have the option to shoot handheld 50% would be very nice indeed!
