no :roll: you think that's a no-brainer, right? there are a ton of them on ebay. is it a good lens for wildlife photography? i just got my tamron 18-250 today. i realize the beercan is better in low light but do you think i still need one? will it give me the reach at sanctuaries? my duck pond is fairly small so birds are closer than they probably would be at a sanctuary.

i AM looking for brighter lenses but i am also considering a 300mm, 400mm or 500mm for birding.

The Beercan isn't a birding lens, and if your 18-250 works well for you, then you don't need a Beercan. But it is faster, sharperand almost as long.
