under consideration is Sigma 135-400mm f/4.5-5.6 DG AF APO

does anyone have thoughts on this, im put off by its weight. Weight: 1245gr
close second is the AF APO 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6 minolta weight: 485 g really considering this, but reviews seem to favor the sigma?
OR the heavier AF 100-400 F4.5-6.7 APO minolta (it can zoom under its own weight :ugh:) weight: 840 g

wide open performance is important! weight also is.

they are a little bit, but they are still big



my 100-400L weighs 3.1lbs :dunno:

maybe i just need to replace it with a 200/4 and a teleconvertor, oh wait i cant find a 200/4 anywhere :ugh:
theres the 200/2.8 at Weight 17.88 oz BUT its ENOURMOUS

Quit bitching. I'll take the weight and bulk of a nice, fast zoom/prime over a lightweight shitty lens any day.

how many lenses do you pack then?
in my bag are the 24, 50, 100, 500mm already:o

im going to bitch becasue im the one that wont use it if i have to lug it around.
