p.1 #1 · telephoto suitable for birds


Hi
Hope you can ask gear questions here. Don't see too many.

I have a friend who wants a telephoto for wildlife and birds in the $1,000 range. His wife called and asked for my input. Wants to get out to the 400-500mm range.

I am completely unfamiliar with this market so I thought I'd get some opinions as the best way(s) to go.

Shoots a Canon Rebel if that makes any difference.

Thanks in advance


Craig

You can get a used 400mm f/5.6 for about $900 nowadays. Best pose this question in the Canon Forum though

Yup, slam dunk 400 5.6. That said if they budget could be stretched just a bit the 100-400 is another winner.
