Today I cry Wolf :-)

Folks, a little break in the Series Greetings from the MED

Subject now: New zoom lens buy
For some time I wanted to by a big boy zoom..up to 400 / 500 ..
-———————————————————————————————————————
Choices :
Canon Zoom 100-400 ± 1400 Euro / $$) $1,610.00 ADORAMA.COM
Sigma Zoom 120-400 ± 700 Euro / $$ 899.00 ADORAMA
Sigma Zoom 150-500 ± 850 Eur0 /$$ $999.00 ADORAMA
-—————————————————————————————————-
Overall I like my Canon lenses!
So Canon 100-400 seem the logic choice unteil I stumbled in to this test sheet;
testing the lenses above , I mentioned..
.
Test read here and compare
-————————
Canon was double the price but NOT double the quality!! Surprising test result!Almost even score!
-—————-
So.. today my loyal photo partner in the field : Foppe 47 and moi went to Rotterdam Zoo
to test out the new lens monster.

My findings? A hell of a heavy lens.. but they all are and I skipped the auto focus option.. than I came to VERY satisfactory results!
.
Image stabilizer is a treath !

I show you some photo’s .. have to say I have to get used to the lens.. but practice will build skill :-)

Thanks Folks and I hope this all is usefull
PS PS PS PS :-)

My friend Jens reminded me, I CAN USE THE LENS ON MY FULL FRAME CANON 5D MRKII
