Lately, I have found the need for a telephoto. I have a few I need to decide from. First, the canon 70-200 f4 L. Next, the sigma 70-200 f/2.8 II. Also, the Nikon Nikkor Vintage 80-200 f4 push pull. I wouldn't be using this TO much, but defiantly dont want to cheap out. The reason for wanting the canon is because I have heard great things about it, durable, weather proof, and decent AF. For the sigma, I like how I get an extra few stops of aperture for around the same price, but have heard about some durability/quality control issues. Lastly, really the main reason I am looking into the Nikkor is because it is a cheap alternative. I have not seen much test footy of it, just hear some good things off of NS bout it. Will I have quality issues with shooting through so much glass?
I wouldn't be using these as an every day lens, but need something for shooting landscape, nature, and skiing.
Lastly, does everyone just use generic tripod collars? Or is that something I shouldn't cheap out on?
+K for help!
Because I'm from the suburbs, not Compton. And you look like an idiot when you are all thugged out in the parking lot waiting for Mom to pick you up in her Lexus crossover.
