    Hello all,

    Greetings of the day.

    I am using Nikon D7500 with 18-140mm lense.

    Want to do wildlife and bird photography.

    What lens will be better for me 70-300mm, 200-500mm or 150-600mm?

    Please share your suggestions.

    Best will be to use a fast Prime lens like a 400mm F/2.8

      Primes are always the best.

    If you also like to shoot birds along with mammals, then go for Tamron 150-600G2 lens, otherwise the 200-500 will be a great one. Of course you can still shoot birds with this.

      Sudhir Ji,

      Thanks a lot for your valued input.

      Tamorn one is the one I am also considering, but what are the drawbacks it has?

      Can you put some light on that please!

        For the cost it offers, no drawbacks.

    Especially with bird photography, i found out pretty soon that the 200-600 lens is a much needed additio to my kitnl. You simply dont have the range with the other lenses. Although, it is definitely a little unwieldy and takes some getting used to.

    Nikon 200-500mm is a great choice
