Default A200/Sigma 600mm mirror lens

This combination has been working very well for me. At the 35mm equivalency of 900mm, I have been hand holding this combination and getting a large percentage of keepers. These two images were taken on a full but thin overcast day using ISO 400 and 1/2500 shutter speed. The aircraft at the terminal were 1.57 miles distant. Try to find one of these Sigmas and save yourself a couple of thousand bucks over a refractive lens having less magnification but better bokeh.
