I'm going to Silverstone for the British GP next month and want to know out of these two lenses which should I go for? The Sigma is around £25 cheaper to hire out, but is it any good? Or is the Canon a big step ahead?

Thanks for any replies!

I rented the Canon in the past and I've owned the Sigma for a few years. The Sigma is a good lens. I couldn't see a noticeable difference in the image quality.

There's one big reason to rent the Canon though. The Sigma lens zoom function is reverse to every other lens I've ever used. When I first got it I was always zooming in the wrong direction. You'll get used to it if you own it and use it regularly. I think you'll curse it the first weekend and may miss some shots.

The Canon push/pull is the safer bet for a one-time rental. If the question was regarding purchasing and funds were tight I would recommend the Sigma though.
