It’s always exciting to get a new lens, and I’ve been in a bit of a funk after battling this latest respiratory infection for so long. I start going a bit stir crazy if I can’t get out of the house, and I tend to end up spending money! Retail therapy to the rescue! …A temporary, but effective mood enhancer. 😉
The new lens is a Sigma 150-500mm . I needed something with a little more reach for wildlife, but most zooms with that range are cost prohibitive for me. I found this one, and while still not cheap (for me) was almost 10x less than a similar Nikon lens. Here are a few shots from my yard. The lens does a good job, especially with plenty of light. In shadows it is a bit tougher to get a shot and you have to boost the iso quite a bit. This isn’t too much of a problem with the newer fx cameras.
