It's my first post on this website despite the fact that I look long your expert opinion (By the way, sorry for the mistakes, i'm from French Polynesia...).
As I said in the title, I'd like your opinion about these two lenses. I know that in one case there is a zoom and the other a prime lens but both can now be obtained at comparable prices (used canon...).
I currently own a 5D MKII and I would want a telephoto for wildlife (alaska in a few months) and surfing (I live in Tahiti) photography. I would also like to use this lens for pictures in the street (if you can call it that here ^^ ).
Depending on the case, I will be required to use a X1.4 TC and X2 TC.
Often, the lens will be used handhold...
A priori, except perhaps for the pictures in the street, I do not think I need anything below 300mm
I thought initially buy the Canon but the Sigma seems to be pretty good.
On performance with or without TC, what would you choose?
Thanks for all !
PS: I frequently use the video mode of the 5D..
