Very nice. I like the look of the 200-500 compared to the Sigma 500.
Thank you, all shots where taken in RAW format, it's just the way each image was processed, depending on the lighting conditions.
The first and second image was underexposed, especially the second one, had to tone it down on the left wing as it was overexposed and remove the shadows from the right wing, the third image was pretty much spot on, just some highlight adjustments.
Both are sharp lenses, the difference between the two is the light gathering capability "you realize it when you look through the viewfinder", which helps keep your ISO low, and the focus acquisition which is night and day between the two "the prime wins hands down", everyone knows that a prime is not 5-10 times better than a comparable zoom, what you pay for is low light capability, fast auto focus, and build quality, also the cost of the glass used and R&D costs, and because it's a specialty item, not as many units are sold, so it's harder for the manufacturer to recoup the costs.
