Nikon D3100 - second hand 100 - 400 lenses

3 years 4 months ago #633565 by Sbiriguda
I will be in Kruger in South Africa this May and I would need to change almost my photo gear but I am on budget because I spent quite a lot for the trip. Right now I have:

a) Nikon D3100 (quite obsoleted, I know)
b) Nikkor Zoom Lens 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Auto Focus-S 
c) Canon Powershot SX60HS

I am considering to buy second hand lenses for the D3100 in particular 100-400, they should be a good compromise both for price reasons and encumbrance. For birding 150-600 would be better

1) Can you suggest me second hand 100-400 lenses around 300 or 400 EUR?
2) Would it make sense to buy second hand 150-600 and resell them after the trip? Is it easy to resell this kind of lenses or would it take long time and effort?
3) Should I consider Sigma 50 500 OS or similar? Are they heavy to carry?

Thank you

That Sigma 50-500mm, it was replaced with something like 60-600mm, however still is a good option, now have you tried or for their used inventory?
