and to answer your question about selling 100-400v1. I would say the only thing it beats the sigma on is portability. its smaller and lighter. but for everything else the sigma pretty much beats it.
This is coming from someone who owned the 100-400v1 for years and really loved it.

Prices all over the place for this lens. Am I to understand that the docking station is at additional cost? If so, do I need it?

Docking station is like $50.00 new,. or less. You need it if you want to upgrade firmware or adjust AF settings.

You could rent one for $10.00 or so,. ie: buy it and then sell it for $40.00 after your done with it, but if you buy a new body down the road that requires it,. and need to upgrade firmware, then your looking for a dock again.

Prices are all over the place,. Good deals at around $800.00 or so do occur on occasion.

Thank you. Hmm, I think I'll get one for my wife since this wekend is Mother's Day. Because she doesn't own a camera, I'm sure she will let me use it.:-)

A Peregrine Falcon today at Jamaica Bay. It was being chased away from an osprey's nest.

Is it worth selling my 100-400L (version 1) to fund the Sigma? The photos in this tread are impressive.

I have both.

100-400:

Lighter, Smaller, Push/Pull zoom (for those of us that like that)

150-600:

Image quality just as good, in my opinion.
Definitely beats the Canon from 401-600mm!

If I could only have one, I'd pick the Sigma. I chose not to sell my 100-400 because there are times that I still use it (youth sports, mainly), the zoom locking ring has failed, and it's got some dust on the inside.

Did you guys know that other forums say that the Canon MFA should be doubled when used in Sigma dock software?
Check this discussion https://www.dpreview.c​om/forums/thread/39684​33 (external link)

I never knew?, what are your findings.

@Mark_UK, I believe you use Focal software right?, did you use the Sigma dock (x2?), or did you use CANON MFA value?

You learn every day (if you want), I never knew and will test this myself (if the weather is getting better that is :-) ).


Ignorance is bliss
