comment Sigma 150-500 for wildlife?
I thought about the 80-400, but at the end of the day it is about $400 more expensive (new, though a quick look at Amazon shows some used for as cheap as $800), less long end range, and only slightly faster. If 300mm is a long enough range that leaves me open to several cheaper options, some under $500, though I kind of think I'd like to have the 500mm, even if I rarely use it, just in case?

comment Sigma 150-500 for wildlife?
Yeah but some reviews have told me that the 150-500 is a little bit sharper, and I don't think I would need the extra range/weight/price of the 50-500.

answered Is there a reason to keep both a 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G and a 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G lens for my Nikon D5100?

How much image quality are you sacrificing for that reduction in weight and cost?

Yeah but the D600 is FX, that's a whole other bag of worms.

comment Why is my D5000 not saving pictures?
Nothing. I mean, it seems to be taking the picture fine. Focus, shutter, etc etc. It just doesn't write the image to the SD card.

Tried that, tried 3 different memory cards. I didn't think it was the lens, but it was working fine until I put this one one. Then again I work in IT so I know enough about technology to know that it's never the obvious culprit.
