Hello folks,
I'm looking at pulling the trigger on the siggy but recently I read a review that stated this lens had an adverse effect on the continuous shooting rate of the 40D.
Has anyone ever encountered this problem with this body/lens combination?

I honestly can't answer that question but I shoot mine with a 60D and it's fine.

can you elaborate exactly what the "continuous shooting rate of the 40D" means? Too fast, too slow?

I use my sigma on the 7D with 8fps and don't have any issues in terms of burst rate.

If it matters, no issues on an XTi, 20D, or 7D.

I'm having troubles imagining how a lens can affect burst speed... unless the AF is playing around badly between shots, or something. :confused:

90% of the shooting I did with the 150-500mm that I had was with a 40D, never had a single issue.

Thanks everyone for your replies. In this review [dated 2008], the writer said it slowed the shooting rate to about three shots a second. I'm thinking he might have tested a defective unit or maybe being an early one it may have had some glitches that have since been rectified.
Guess I'll go ahead and pull the trigger because I can't justify the 100-400's price hike and the IQ results of the siggy seem quite close.
Cheers
Mark
