    Events are different. But what i mean is to take in public places. Sometimes they will know u're taking them but they don't mind while sometimes it's the other way round which can be a bad experience.

    after looking at the range for a long time , i found that the sigma 120-300 F2.8 is a great lens to cover the range of 70-200, because it gives the best reach and range.

    won't la. sgp ppl only talk loud but no guts one. unless u shooting at lor 8 geylang la.

    in fact, a longer focal length maybe troublesome because u get ppl walking into the frame when u abt to shoot. tats even worse.

    I know some people use these lenses for outdoor portraits/events (you have to stand pretty far away because of the min focussing range, wouldnt a 85/100mm be better?), and some people use them for nature (200mm is too short to shoot the majority of wildlife/birds I feel..) and some people for indoor sports e.g. basketball, badminton (seems like its too short for outdoor sports like football, tennis, golf). This lens is not a typical lens people carry for travel as its heavy, and wide angles are typically preferred and its a tough lens to use for street shooting because of its size. Indoor shots would not work well unless you have a big space to work with because of the min focussing limit and it will probably lose out to the f1.8 lenses as these are a full stop faster.

    So what do people usually use these types of lenses for? Thanks for any comments..

    thought I'd just add my thoughts,

    70-200 good for portraits , boke also, add x2 extender can shoot moon and other out door sports, add a close up filter (do not zoom too much, quality really bad) can use a temporary macro , will post my humble pics when free hee

    Some posed shots can be very nice, similar to doing a model shoot....but this is a very mini one.
