    Bag for 50-150mm?

    I thought I'd post this here before looking elsewhere because there are a few of you with the sigma already. Is there a good bag that would fit my D50 with the 50-150mm attached? I'd like something...

    Yep, should work fine. Just to clarify, that's a filter to put on the lens. If the filter will work with your camera depends on what lens you're using, and I assume you're using the 18-55mm kit lens....

    I'd get the 50mm f/1.8 and then the nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8 if size doesn't matter, or the sigma 50-150mm if you want a lens a little easier to travel with.

    Thanks r3g. According to your sig, you've got both. Any more input? Does the 50-150mm perform that much better to justify the added price?

    Thanks for all your help guys, I appreciate it.

    And just to complicate things a little more, any thoughts on the sigma 70-200mm f/2.8? It seems to be a little less expensive used than the 50-150mm. Would the 70-200mm be too large to get good shots...

    Well the point is I want some zoom, best I've got now is 55mm. I'm just saying 150mm and plenty of light would probably be more useful than 200mm and not enough.

    Just to clarify, low-light, no flash is key. I'd rather have more light and less reach, honestly.

    I know they are both solid lenses. Does VR help at low light or not? I got the impression for a...

    Let us know what you think of the lens. I'm seriously looking at it due to the combination of weight, f/2.8, telephoto, and price. It's right in the sweet spot of those for me.

    I've got a D50. I'll probably download the trial of Capture NX and play around with it; have there been any updates on when the Universal version will be released?

    That would do it; if you're going to be uploading regularly you'd be best of upgrading to Pro, it's only $25. I'll probably upgrade soon.
