@ Dreamer ...:)

The 400mm f/5.6 is a great, light and sharp lens.



It seems Touareg and I have similar thoughts !!!! :wink:

Why not hire each of the lenses for a day.


I know where you can play with one of the lenses in question ..."for free"...it may just cost you a cup of tea !!!!

Dreamer...you have two camera bodies...need I say any more ???
A 400 5.6 is the way to go !!!!

:hmz: Caracal is becoming quite a poet .............. :wink:
