Affordable long lenses
Long lenses can cost as much as a mid-range car, but there are cheaper options. For example, Sigma offers a 150-500mm superzoom with excellent autofocus for under £600/870, or the recently announced 150-600mm Sport at a slightly higher cost. Alternatively, you could hire a lens: Hireacamera.com offers the Sigma 150-500 at £20 per day, or for £55 per day Calumet (www. calumetrental.co.uk) offers the Nikon 400mm used here.
