    If wildlife photography is your priority and the weight of the equipment is not an overriding issue, that would be my recommendation. If a 2.8 aperture and 200mm fits your budget, that would be my 1st choice. You can later by a 2x teleconverter which in essence gives you a 5.6 aperture and a 400mm in focal length you can use when light is not an issue.

    Photography is more expensive than hunting! Nice photos, especially the bobcat. "I tot I taw a puddy tat!"
    I'm into photography now. I found a book at Books-A-Million- Digital Photography for Dummies. I bought it, thinking the name was just for me. Goes into a lot of detail about different aspects of digital photography; has comparative photos showing how different settings and conditions influence a photo.

    Yes, camera gear and Photography is crazy expensive. I will take a look at the book recommended...always looking to learn. For me when filming or taking photos, it's always my goal to show it how my eyes are seeing it and adding different perspectives for anyone looking in.
