    @Dawg Pics - B&H has the Nikon mount of the Tokina for $419 (one day sale) while Adorama lists the Canon mount for that price but the Nikon mount at $499. If you paid the higher price, you might want to see if Adorama will price match since it's within 30 days.

    If Adorama hesitates, let them know they've been advertising the Flashpoint version of some of the Godox AD strobes on sale, and B&H has been right there matching their prices. Those two stores are usually pretty competitive.

    @hark. I just saw that on the B&H site, but it is now too late for me to call them for a match. Maybe I can take a screen shot and try to get them to lower the price. I don't know if that will work. I think the main difference in price for Adorama is the "free expedited shipping" (cough cough.) Ha Ha. B&H has free standard shipping for that lens.


    Thanks for the heads-up. Too bad I didn't see it earlier.

    B&H just got some of my money because Adorama doesn't have the tripod head in stock that I settled on.

    @Peter7100 That tripod head would break some teeth.

    I decided it has too many issues, besides the rust, to bother trying to repair it. You need a gorilla grip to tighten the knobs enough to lock it down, and then the tilt axis drifts. It isn't exactly compact either.

    Post your latest purchases.
    After many weeks debating with myself on which telezoom to go for I finally decided on the Sigma 150-600.
    The main driving factor was the extra 100mm reach and price over the Nikon 200-500. I'm sure the latter is better built and I suspect is quicker to focus on moving subjects. The only issue I have found so far with the Sigma is, for moving subjects it is not as quick to latch on to focus immediately like my Nikon 300mm does.
    I carried it around for a couple of hours yesterday and to be honest I didn't find the weight to be an issue and that is coming from someone who a few years ago had a very bad shoulder fracture and dislocation, which has left some movements issue.
    Sharpness wise, I am impressed so far, particulary for the purpose of the photo's I take. As it is widely reported about focus issues and docks being required, I was able to establish this lens has never had one attached as I bought it secondhand and the previous owner never used one since he purchased it new. So that might tend to suggest what I thought before that there is good and not so good copies out there.
    It's early days yet as I have still to have fun with it and I suspose the big question for me is if it will also make my Nikon 300mm redundant, but it will have to really perform well for that to happen.
    My very first image with was a shot of the moon from my back garden, where there is really too much light polution, however I thought the result was not too bad. Exampe below.

    Re: Post your latest purchases.

    I love my Sigma 150-600 C. I also purchased mine in place of the Nikon 200-500 and have not regretted it.

    Peter, the Sigma 150-600mm C is quite sharp. I have not seen the focus problems others have reported, but I do also have a Sigma dock now so I could update the firmware and customize the function switches.

    Don't worry about light pollution with moon photos, it is far too bright in the sky to be visibly effected.

    I had wondered about the colour as 30 mins later when I tried again the orange/red tone had gone and it was just a normal looking moon. I certainly didnít do any pp on it to affect it. I therefore assumed it was light pollution or something else in the atmosphere?
