I've been away from the site for the last 8 months or so, I've lost interest in just about every aspect of day to day life and am battling to get back into at least some of it.

So I bought new gear! I got three new lenses, Canon 85mm 1.8, Tamron 70-200 2.8 G2 and the mother of all super zooms, the Sigma 150-600mm Sport.

The sigma is a monster of a lens, here it is compared to my original Sigma 50-500, the Bigma... it's going to have to change it's name!

Congrats, Craig.  Looking forward to seeing some images from your new gear.  That 50-500 is going to need muscle or a pretty good tripod.  Have you thought of a gimbal head?

Take my advice.  I'm not using it.Wink

It looks like you might need some strength and stamina training before you get going with that new kit! Take it steadily and don't strain yourself!

All the best, Craig.

Wow! Good to see you back here Craig!
I hope the new gear inspires some motivation!
I've hardly been taking photos with my cameras, but now taking plenty with the iphone. 
The Bigma has lasted you many years hasn't it?  The new bigma makes the old bigma look small! hahaha
