looking at the options and from what you people with knowledge have said i will probably go for the 400 5.6 get an 1.4 extender and use that between the 400 and my 70-200 2.8

right now i have to find one at the right price

thanks all

One other point that might help.
I use the Kenko pro 300 1.4X TC. I'm more than pleased with the results I get both with the 400mm F5.6 and with my Sigma 150mm. The Kenko will also fit where the Canon one will not and you'll save a few bob as well.

Quote: The Prinz Galaxy lens was a Dixons own brand lens produced during the 1970's, the quality will be poor to say the least, I would not bother with it.

Dixons used to brand all sorts of stuff with the Prinz label, hi-fi equipment being one of them. It was cheap and cheerful gear so I expect the lens will be a similar standard.

I endorse Kerso as will many here.

Competitive prices, excellent service, full guarantees.

You may find items cheaper elsewhere but BEWARE of bargains that seem 'too good to be true"
