Thanks for posting the boat racing photo. As this is the main reason I started looking at a 100-400 in the first place. My 70-200 was just to damn short. An added bonus you used an 80D since that's the camera I have as well! How's the AF tracking seem to work with this lens?

In scenarios like those pictures it works pretty good but with birds and other smaller object coming towards you it's not fast enough.

So long as it works for motorsports

Anyway, the lens arrived today. And my first impressions are, it's heavy as hell! Considering it's size. Not a negative or positive, just an observation. I got the dock also. Not sure how well any of those settings work. But from reading the descriptions, I think I have it set for how I plan to shoot.

Got home late from work. The wife went grocery shopping and I had a sick 2 y/o to deal with. So couldn't get outside. Till after dark. So I shot the moon. Again, but this time at 400mm, so much less cropping. I got the focus close manually but intentionally off a bit, then using back button focusing, I was surprised the thing actually locked on to the moon. It didn't hunt at all. Irronically even though it was handheld, it's the sharpest shot of the moon I've gotten to date! OH and no decernable CA, least not that I can see. More shooting will be required to determine if I need to MFA the lens or not. But this is pretty good for not adjusting the microfocus at all!

Yes for big contrasty objects cars ,boats and similar sized objects= no problem focusing
With this kind--> post 41 and with small object coming towards you there is problem with focus speed.

I was hellbent on buying the Canon 100-400 MKII then I stumble across this thread.......-? Is there anyone that has owned the two lenses that can give an honest evaluation.

I don't own either, and never will. I can still tell you, with absolutely no hesitation, the $2200 lens is going to outperform the $700 lens. Optics may be close, maybe not. The AF on the Canon is going to hugely trump the Sigma. I'm keeping my 100-400Lc because it is fast enough for sports/athletics/actio​n. The II MUST be better.

O own both and like them both. The SIGMA was on my wifes camera most of the time we were in Botswana, and it worked flawlessly.

The vast majority of the differences are in the specs,.
Other than that, there is the faster more confident Canon AF.
