    Realistically speaking, Sigma 100-300 f/2.8 OS would be a better choice (easily affordable).

    Next year is still a long way to go, bro! Btw, 100-300 not necessarily mean I'd go FF... on DX, the reach is expanded!

    with a tc20 and cropped factor... 300 becomes a 900mm!!
    Imagine the image compression you can do with this.....
    Any idea what is the street value of this lens?
