    Once again I reach out my friends on EPZ for advice. My quandary is simple, having recently replaced my trusty Sigma 70-300 with the beast that is the Canon 70-200 2.8 IS L11. It has left me short at the long end for my wildlife pictures (birds, deer, etc). I am undecided between the above lenses and wondered what experience anyone had with them.

    120-400
    Pros
    Lighter and smaller
    77mm filter thread (same as Canon)
    F4-5.6
    Cons
    I used to find the 300 was too short, will the extra 100mm make that much difference?

    150-500
    Longer reach, less overlap.

    I will be shooting with a 60D

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi, I bought the 100-400 canon, love it. I have the 60d as well. Bought from ebay and saved quite a bit. This was at Martin Mere in Lancashire on the first trip out with it, so I am improving all the time with it

    don't think the 2x will be a lot of cop but the 1.4 will give great results Wink
