Looked at both the 80-400 and 50-500, but went for the Canon mainly for better focusing and the IS...which came in very handy for the rally I went to at Clipstone recently. Having said that, I would be well pleased with this Rich, the large version is superb! Smile

IS would be rather handy but it was that little bit more expensive - no probs for martin 'moneybags' west tho' Wink
