The Sigma 150-500 is a good bit of kit, I bought one for Mrs B which she uses a lot on birding expeditions.

I've got my old Canon point and press, does that count? Oh and it's got lenses as well................................ :rolf

Seriously though to capture photos like that must be wonderful.

Del, compact and bridge cameras can be very useful. I have a Canon Powershot bridge camera that I like to carry with me when travelling light. I used it to capture this image of a skylark at Abberton reservoir last Sunday.

I/we have never been photographers Paul and in the days of film we always laughed about how it would take at least 2 years of holidays to fill a roll, we did make up for it when we went to Oz and Hong Kong in 1990 for a month and actually filled 4 rolls, yep a whole 4. Mark and I have a mutual mate and some of his photos are amazing with the minute detail he captures.

PS. I love the Skylark photo and we used to hear them all the time when I was a kid on Canvey but haven't heard one for years now.

I have a Nikon 70-300VR and would highly recommend it. I have found that at air shows it doesn't quite have the zoom "reach" I'd like, especially for solo aircraft. The Sigma 50-500 would be on my wish list, but I don't do enough photography now to justify it.
