    Beginner Wildlife photography set up

    Not ever having used a Canon 400, regardless of lens - your losing performance with an extender. The Sigma/Tamron Lenses are a no brainer considering the price of the manufacturer's offerings. (Pro's excluded). Have a look at some of the pictures on this thread :-...

    only 1 lens, what would it be

    That's a good shout Bob. Seen a few in the forum for sale and been tempted at times. Have these focal lengths covered with quality Nikon lenses. Be useful when my girlfriend helps me out occasionally as second shooter on another body (D7200 or D700). Cheers, Dougie.

    only 1 lens, what would it be

    Does he use Lightroom ?. Easy enough to use the filter. Soon tell him what his most used focal length is. Cheers, Dougie. p.s. I have that lens also and would not be getting rid. Excellent for so many different purposes.

    Sophos Anti-Virus is free for personal use on the Mac. This is a decent AV client.
