I'd agree with others that for the budget it's worth having a look at the Manfrotto 055 legs (there have been many variants over the years) with either a 128 or 501 head. My Swaro scope sits on a 501...

I had both the 100-400 mkI and the Sigma 150-600 Contemporary for a while. They are both good lenses but in the end I could only keep one of them. I still have the Canon. Personally I would not give...

I would say that the cover for the 150-500 would not fit your lens as there are significant difference in 6th bodies of the two lenses. LensCoat do make a cover for the 170-500, WEX may have this.

I've ordered the DR-07x. In the end the difference in price worked out at only 7 so it seemed well worth that little extra. Hopefully it will arrive tomorrow and I will get the chance to have play...

After last year pondering many options for recording I ended up getting the Zoom H4 with a shotgun mic which I then returned! While it was clearly a good set up I found that if I...

Decision made and recorder ordered. Went for the Zoom h4n in the end so hopefully will get my head round it (and Audacity) and end up with some half decent recordings in time.
