Suggestions on photography gear for birding? I am in the market for a new camera and lens for birding. Budget is 1400.00 or less for camera and lens? Speed, crisp pictures, and low noise are a must. It is strictly for birding. Current selections are shown below – Canon T3i with the 70-300mm IS USM lens. What suggestions do you have?
CAMERA: Canon – EOS Rebel T3i 18.0-Megapixel DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens. 699.00
LENS: Canon – 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens. 550.00
All help and suggestions would really be appreciated.
