    okie bro, when the time comes, will take a closer look that lens.... I prob will go into landscape first..... 12-24mm (sigma) and loads of filter I guess.... .... or maybe 17-50mm f/2.8(Tamron) my next target..... ..... I use my 50mm mostly for my BB... but sometime too close... then my 17-55 kit lens no good using in-door.... need a faster lens.... or any skill to impart using the kit lens to shoot my BB???

    consider a tele converter to boost a 200mm.should be quite light, rather than buying another telephoto lens that is much more expensive.

    hi!
    there's another lens with is very cheap but you got to practice using MF.
    Opteka 500mm Mirror Lens (US$105 including 2x TeleConverter,T Mount Adapter & filters such as ND 2x,ND4x,Skylight) or other mirror lenses...
    Sigma has 400mm and 600mm mirror lenses,Tamron has 500mm ones.

    i saw the photo test using tamron 500mm mirror lens,
    the results are very good for the price...

    i almost got myself a bigma 50-500mm,i didn't buy it because of the weight.
    the results are great!i tested many shots with that bigma lens.

    if you want a cheaper and weight lighter one,
    maybe sigma 170-500mm is the better choice...
    the results are also very good...

    btw,i'm new here.regards to all!

    Sorry bro. I cannot answer that question because I cannot afford an f/4 prime. My one is f/5.6 nia. Quite lightweight, so is OK lah.
