I have a Canon EOS 50D and 3 lenses:
- Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
- Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 Di Macro
- Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
I want a telephoto lens to take pics of small animals in nature. Something like birds, squirrels and so on at a distance. I want to be able to stand far enough not to frighten the animals and still get close-up, detailed photos of them.
I'd like to be able to stand near the tree and take pics with quality similar to this photo.
With my current lens I can do something like this, but I need a very friendly animal and be able to stand almost in front of it.
So, what can I choose, if I have about $600 (but not more)?
