Chiapas, Mexico.

I wonder if anyone can help me? I am thinking of buying the Canon EOS RebelXT for use in wildlife photography (wild otters). A few photoes will be taken in less than optimum light conditions, eg in shade, early dusk, late dawn etc.

Which telephoto lens, preferably zoom, would be best?A max tele of between 300mm-500mm would be great. Are there any decent teleconverters available?

I am willing to spendup toaround600 dollars.

Good image quality is important.

Thanks for your help!

For $600 you're getting close to a Tokina 80-200 f/2.8 for low-light:

If you need faster AF focusing then the Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 EX + HSM would be next...
... The best for you would probably be the Sigma 100-300 f/4 EX HSM which is sharper than some primes (and still <$800! :idea:

-> The sky would be the limit after that for fast lenses in early dusk, late dawn etc.. :-) :lol: :G
