Wow, thank you for the fast and plentiful replies!

The 100-400... that ones does seem like a nice compromise. I really like using primes, but at this range it does become a bit inconvenient. Plus having IS and such a long range could certainly come in handy for some other shoots as well. (And it's not that much more expensive than the 400 prime)

I guess I should really look into that one more closely ones I've paid off my current equipment. (Why did I have to choose such an expensive hobby?)

Thanks for the tip with the refurbished store as well, but it doesn't seem like there is something similar here in Germany :(

Any change of some sample pictures? (And on what camera are you using it?)

Lenses / Good yet affordable telephoto lens?

Hi folks,

hope somebody here can give me some pointers. I was recently forced to renew my equipment (mental note to self: do not leave your camera backpack in your car in Vancouver. Even if it's locked and nobody can see it) I replaced most of the things I had and changed some of the things around. Currently I have the 7D with Canon's 24-70 2.8, and the 50mm 1.8 plus Sigma's 85mm 1.4 and 150mm macro 2.8 OS.
I used to have Sigma's 70-200 2.8 + the 2x converter, but decided to not get this one for now. (Well, my bank account sort of decided against it) But sooner or later I will want to replace the loss of long zoom range as well. Question is though, with what? The 70-200 from Sigma had an okay quality, but that was pretty much it. It was okay. From what I read on the internet Canon's version might be better built and reliable, but image quality wise it's not going to be much better. (And their IS version is on the outer edge of my budget) In terms of range the 150-500 from Sigma sounds nice, but I haven't hard much good and a lot of bad about that one. The only other affordable lenses I could think of would be the 300/4 or 400/5.6 from Canon. (Plus maybe the 1.4 converter)

So, any recommendations, experiences or great ideas on how I can get long range at an affordable price? (With affordable meaning less than Canon's 70-200 2.8 IS)
