User Introduction / Hello From Dublin

Hell there.

My name is Tobias and I'm from Dublin, Ireland. I started photography about 6 years ago. I currently own a Canon EOS 700D and recently switched to ML. A friend of mine told me about it. Luckily I found this forum and I'm looking for some insights as well as tips and tricks on how to use ML effectively.


Hardware and Accessories / telephoto zoom lens or converter lens

Hello Everyone.

I'm so glad I found this forum and it is great to be here! So over the past few days I was lurking around and finally decided to register.

I currently own a Canon EOS 700D and recently started using ML. A friend of mine told ma about it. I still need to get used do it, but I guess it just takes time.

Right now I'm looking for a new telephoto zoom lens. Or I should say I'm not sure about it. I own a pretty basic 18 to 135 mm zoom lens. But I'd like to get a new (better?) one. So far I found a Sigma and Tamron 70-300 mm lens suitable for my camera. I guess the Tamron is a bit more expensive than the Sigma.

I figured out another potion would be a (telephoto) converter lens. So I did some research  and checked out some websites classified adds and found some on There are plenty available but I don't know which one I should pick. I guess this would definitely be the cheapest option because both lenses mentioned above are pretty pricey.

So what should I do now? Get the converter or a proper telephoto zoom lens, and which one? I was also thinking to by a used lens. Are there some common pitfalls to avoid?

And the last thing: are there some (known) issues with the lenses above in conjunction with ML? Is there anything I have to consider with regard to the converter lens as well?

Sorry for all the questions, but I don't know so much about lenses. Therefore any feedback is greatly appreciated.
