Re: Considering hiring a lens

Thank you for your feedback. I had guessed that they would be heavy - I had brought a tripod with me yesterday, too, and spent most of the time using that: although the 50-200 works well hand-held, it is difficult, even with stabilisation and a fast shutter speed, to get a sharp image with the teleconverter, and the tripod made things much easier. The Wetlands centre is happy for people to use tripods (a goodly proportion of their visitors are photographers; I saw quite a few people with very sizeable lenses).
