  • Excerpt: I'm a big fan of 300/2.8 lenses. Short enough to be useful when shooting landscapes, long enough to shoot larger mammal species, they're also fast and sharp enough to use with 2x teleconverters. The resulting 600/5.6 is an excellent choice for photographing birds and smaller mammals. Though somewhat heavy and chunky, they are surprisingly compact and will fit in many camera bags. Extremely easy to use on a monopod, it is the largest lens I can handle on a shoulder stock.
