I love capturing birds in flight.
I use an inexpensive ($400) Tamron lens. It’s not the greatest, but it does allow me to capture the occasional sharp and clear image.
I desperately want a L Series Canon telephoto… but they are oh so pricey! So, until I can scrape the funds together, this Tamron SP 70-300 mm for Canon is okay, and is the lens I used to capture all of the images below.
Sigma just came out with a new telephoto – SP 150-600 mm f/5-6.3 Di VC – and I have my eye on it, big time… the reviews look promising, and the price is reasonable: $1,069.00, compared to the ultra expensive but ultra-fabulous Canon telephotos…..
