I went with a Sigma 150-600 last winter, but just couldn't let go of my 100-400. I prefer the push/pull when shooting youth sports. It got to see some action in Yellowstone last Spring, mainly because it fit in my backpack a little easier.

California Poppies shot with my Sony a6300 + Canon 100-400L "Dust pump". The adapter used is the Metabones IV.

Congratulations! I hope you have fun with it.

For the LAX games, if you don't already use one I'd suggest getting a monopod. I love the 100-400 for soccer (bought mine used, too!), and while a great lens it is heavy after 15 minutes. I use a monopod with a ball head, which allows me to aim most anywhere and keep the camera pointed where I want while staying level. (I use the MeFOTO RoadTrip tripod broken down into a monopod configuration with a 5DM3 and the 100-400mm.)

I agree on the main monopod. I used mine even with the 70-200

You will really enjoy it for LAX, especially in good light. I've been using it for both LAX as well as softball. In the daytime sunny skies, it really shines. I shoot mainly handheld and don't have any issues, although I can see the benefits in using a monopod.
Here's a sample of how it performs attached to my 1D Mk III for LAX:

Have fun with your new lens!

For the LAX games, if you don't already use one I'd suggest getting a monopod.

When shooting outdoor team sports, aren't we usually lying on the ground, or sitting on the ground - in order to get the best angle?

When in a prone or sitting position, I find the monopod useless, as I can more easily support the gear with my elbows firmly on the ground (when prone) or with my elbows solidly planted atop my inner thighs (when seated). Even when kneeling, I find that resting one elbow on my chest/belly offers more versatile support than a monopod does.

It seems to me like a monopod is only useful if one is standing up.....but then the angle is all wrong and the photos aren't as dramatic or compelling as they could be.

.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Well :) for you youngsters that is fine, but for us old grandpas out to catch some shots of our grankids, you probably wont see many lying on the ground or sitting with their legs crossed (me especially). Kidding aside, you watch the sidelines on the pro sports you will see a lot of professionals using monopods. To me it is easier to pivot with the shot on the mono pod than while sitting or lying on the ground braced on the elbows. I will often take a little folding stool that puts me down close to the ground.
