Building Your Lens Kit For Digital Action
With the autumn migrations and rutting season approaching fast, now is the time to put together a set of lenses to help you capture all the action
Tamron’s longest lens is the SP AF200-500mm F/5-6.3 Di LD (IF) tele-zoom. Usable on full-frame and APS-C D-SLRs (as well as 35mm SLRs), this lens provides an excellent range of focal lengths (on an APS-C D-SLR, it’s equivalent to a 300-750mm zoom). It focuses down to 98.4 inches for a 1:5 reproduction ratio, making it suitable for some insect and spider photography. The 200-500mm is available in Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts.
Tokina’s best wildlife lens is the AT-X 80-400mm ƒ/4.5-5.6 zoom, which comes in mounts for Canon and Nikon AF SLRs and can focus down to 8.2 feet (for a 1:5.4 reproduction ratio). It measures 3.1x5.4 inches and weighs 35.9 ounces, quite compact
