As all the members that contribute to this site take similar pictures I would be interested in knowing what lenses are used. I personally use a sigma 120-300 zoom but find this far too short at times, i have a 1.4 and a 2x tele converter but find these degrade the image so much that I dont use them. Does anybody use longer lenses than 300mm and if so what lens do you use.

Alan, I use a Sigma 50 - 500 mm lens and also a Canon 400 mm f5.6 prime lens.
Alan, I just bought the Sigma 150-500mm lens which I use with my Nikon D90. Only had it a week but works very well.

I am using a Sigma 120-400mm. I have a kenko 2x extender but it degrades the images and i dont get AF using it.

Tamron 200-500. Happy with it for the price, but would like something faster.
