 Post subject: Birding with the Bigmos
PostPosted: Thu Jan 21, 2010 4:27 am 
I recently got a Sigma 150-500, aka 'Bigmos', to do some birding. Since the Canon 500 F4 was out of reach for me, I decided to give the Sigma a try. It performs quite well with my 5DMII, even wide open and in less than ideal lighting.

C&C are always welcome.

Hello rcheng,
Nothing to criticize. Those are some pretty awesome shots :)
Keep on surprising us.
Have a nice day.

Beautiful shots, rcheng...

You must have scared the c*** out of the last bird, aiming that gear at it from under 3m away (according to the exif data)!!!!

Thanks for your comments. I'm glad I got a good copy of this lens and saved a bunch of cash over the 500m F4. Before I got this lens, I didn't know birding was so much fun. :)

The little birds were too busy feeding by my feeders to pay too much attention to me. :lol:
