Great work !
You're an artist of your own nature.
I am more than enlightened with your brief review Mike. Than you very kindly.
The Sigma 50-500mm is a pretty sharp lens. I've used it and had really good results with it. But the trouble I had with it was the max aperture of f/6.3 at the 500mm end, which was very limiting. To shoot birds in flight, you'd want to be able to use fast shutter speeds. If you used a TC17EII teleconverter on the Nikon 300mm f/4, you'd get a max aperture of about f/6.7 which isnt much any better. But you get an effective focal length of 510mm. I suppose both lenses are excellent choices, but if it came down to optical quality, the 300mm f/4 takes the cake. Later on you may find the max aperture limiting and look towards a f/2.8 prime lens. That's actually where I am right now.
Your's is a great gallery. Not only because of the varied photos posted but more so because of the educational write-ups you made on some of the gears most particularly the 300mm F4 Nikkor. I'm glad you have this Nikkor lens and Sigma's 50-500mm. I have read a lot of reviews about these 2 lenses and viewed lot of photos taken with them. But I have never read a review done by a reviewer who owns and uses both lenses. For this reason I believe you are the most qualified person to answer my question. If you were to buy only one of these 2 lenses for birding photography which of the 2 lenses would you consider buying? I like both but I can only afford just one. And I have to buy one of these next month. Thank you.
