Quote:Am hoping to by this lens in the next couple of days, have seen it on camerabox. Has anyone had any dealings with this online store.

Thanks

Steve



I brought my Canon EF 70-200mm f4L USM from Camerabox with no problems at all. I searched epz and found that other people had also used them with no problems.

Also worth considering the Sigma 120-300 F2.8 with a 1.4 or 2x extender, 420mm @ F4, 600mm @ F5.6 Smile

Thanks for your help, yeah "Urdygurdy" I'm trying to decide between the bigma or the 150-500 mm. Both have great reviews. Decisions / Decisions.. ha,ha,ha,haha,aha......looks like both lenses will fit in my backpack. thanks again everyone

I decided to get the Sigma 150 - 500 due to the fact that it has OS (Optical Stabilization) whereas the Bigma does not. I know I will still have to use a tripod in most situations, but there will be times where i want to take a quick shot, and I think the OS will help me alot.

I have owned a Bigma, the most well built lens I have ever come across, it is heavy at almost 4.5 pounds, and is definitely a tripod lens (useless handheld). Good image quality, but I replaced it with a Canon EF 100-400mm IS USM L series and found even better image quality. Not knocking the Sigma Bigma though...............Martin
