|Ha, ha, ha, Pankaj! You make me laugh.
I should be the last person in the world to be consulted with for technical advice on equipment.
You know what? I quietly printed out Howards's profile page from TN and kept it in front of me while choosing my 2 lenses at a camera shop in Riyadh this January.
Now I sometimes regret my choice; I ought to have gone for 70-400mm or 180mm or 24-70mm or...... and so on.
The dilemma of choosing lenses brings the worst of Hamlet in most of us!!!
On a serious note, one thing is for sure: Sigma lenses are cheaper and reliable in my opinion. For tele lenses, I would suggest a higher range, say, 400mm and above.
Anyway, go by your own gut feeling in the end.
All the best.
