Went to Tallulah Gorge State Park and got images of the young peregrine falcon before it fledged. They started this nest 3 years ago. First naturally occuring falcon nest in GA in 80 years the park service said.

Every time I say to myself "yeah, my next lens is going to be the Sigma 100-400", I see a notification that there's a new entry for this thread!

And then I need to re-convince myself all over again!

Not taking anything away from the Sigma, as it has a lot going for it (price, smaller size, great IQ), but if you have the financial flexibility, this is the lens to get. Exquisite IQ performance, great build quality, close MFD (increases versatility), and it works flawlessly with the 1.4III TC.

I'd wait and see what deals come up for Fathers Day in a few weeks. If a 10% refurb coupon presents itself, you can save a good chunk of $$$.

Go back to the very first post and carefully read (or reread) Jake's review. If that doesn't convince you, then buy the Sigma. The Canon is spectacular in my opinion but it also costs a bit more than twice as much as the Sigma. Evaluate your probable use and act accordingly:mrgreen:

Oh, I know it's better than the Sigma, but I don't know if I'd use it enough to justify the extra cost.

I could use the difference to pay for a exotic-(ish) vacation.

Anyway, I'll just keep changing my mind :)

Jake has now also bought the Sigma. I am waiting to see his thoughts between the two.

I'm looking to replace my 150-500... it'll probably be either the Canon 100-400 (if I'm going for best AF & IQ performance), the Sigma 150-600 C (if I'm going for most reach) or the Sigma 100-400 C (if I'm going for best bang-for-buck).

I'm thinking that I'll appreciate the extra 50mm which goes wide more than I'll appreciate the extra 100mm going long with the 150-600.

The big factor for me was the LR review/ teardown, and seeing and reading how well-built it is. It took me a few years to stomach the cost, but it's been damn near glued to my camera since. It's wonderful for shooting the zoo in my back yard.

Sigma is great,. I am liking it's size,. but AF wise it does not compare. It may be some time before I use the Siggy enough to post a thorough evaluation, my Mom just died :( and it's been all funeral and family.

I'd argue the Sigma 150-600mm on sale is the best bang for your buck. I paid less for it new than I did for the Sigma 100-400mm.

EDIT: I just saw your location, different parts of the world usually means any talk of pricing is not comparable.
