Backpacking lens kit (Southern Asia)
Posted By marc121

Thank you everyone! I think I've made my decision on the 18-135mm WR and 55-300MM WR. I still want the extra reach the 55-300mm offers as I will probably go on a tiger safari and will probably be returning in Africa next Year. I will bring along a fast prime but I haven't set my mind on which one yet (maybe two they are usually very light)


AquaDome: I do not use the full reach of the Bigma as often as I thought I would. My camera is effectively a K-50, well guessed!
Audiobomber: Thank you for the clarification, I was sure that lens was weather resistant. Could you image I had bought one without knowing that!


I post picture of that trip when I get back for you guys


Thank you again!

Backpacking lens kit (Southern Asia)
Posted By marc121

Hello everyone, I need your advice on what lens kit I should bring with me during my two months trip through


-United Arab Emirates (Dubai & Abu Dhabi)
-India for three weeks
-Thailand
-Vietnam


Here are the four lenses I currently own:


-18-55mm WR DAL
-FA 50mm F1.4
-Vivitar 100mm (with the marcro adapter)
-Sigma 50-500mm aka Bigma




Obviously both UAE and India will be pretty dusty and probably so will the coast of vietnam and thailand as well as having some pouring rain. It is probably wise that I get WR lenses for this trip. I do have a limited budget but if needed I might sold my Bigma as I don't use it so much and it's way too big and heavy to bring in a backpacking trip. I don't want to bring too many lenses or too expensive ones as there is a clear chance we might get robbed in those countries (especially India). I thought of maybe getting one or two additional old primes (I.E. 35mm, 50mm, maybe 18mm?)


So basically I need to be:


-Not too heavy
-Not too many lenses
-Covering a lot of different ranges
-WR if possible.




-I maybe thought of getting a 18-250mm WR which would cover most of the range and be WR plus maybe two primes. I don't know about the image quality of the 18-250mm though?
-Otherwise maybe the 18-55mmWR even if it's not a great lens and buy the 55-300mm WR and get a prime lens


Do you have any other suggestion of lens kit I should bring for this trip?

I bought those a few weeks ago and they work fine. I mostly use the battery that came with the camera and switch for those whenever it's low. Here's the link:

DA 55-300mm vs Bigma 50-500mm at 300mm focal
Posted By marc121

Ok you got me I already called back the lady and said I would take it. From what she's told me it was her father's, who just passed away, probably why it is priced so cheaply. Anyways I am gonna have a good look at it before I hand the money to make sure everything is good with the lens. I still have some 7 months before I leave for another trip (South-east Asia) so I guess I can play with it enough and see if it's ok to carry in a backpack. If not I might keep it just for the sake of having it when I go on a safari next year and buy the 55-300 to have something lighter and WR to carry around


Thank you everyone, cheers!

DA 55-300mm vs Bigma 50-500mm at 300mm focal

Hello everyone, I am recent to the photography community. I have recently bought a DA55-300 lens to get extra reach for my kit but I had to return it and get full refund because of a defect.Today an opportunity came up to buy a used Bigma 50-500mm apo dg f4.0-6.3 (the previous version I believe) for 350$. In my opinion it's probably a good deal for that lens but that's were I come to you for advice before I buy it and don't get ripped off. I like this lens because it has extra reach which will most probably be useful next year for my second safari trip. I don't like the fact that it seems heavy and rather hard to carry around while backpacking (I will probably have to unmount it from the body everytime I want to put it back in my backpack (which has a dslr compartment). I do travel often so carrying the lens is important to me as well.


So to sum it up, should I get another DA55-300mm or should I get the Bigma at that price instead? How do both compare at 300mm focal lenght IQ Wise are they on the same level? What about their autofocus too? I tend to think I should go with the 55-300mm but the Bigma seems like a good deal at about the same price.


55-300mm:
+Compact and light to carry around
+Not too bad IQ
-300mm might be too short


50-500mm:
+Long range
+Useful in next safari
-Heavy and harder to carry
- I don't know much about its IQ




Thank you so much for your comments
