Thank you for your kind words. I did rent the lens before I bought a copy. I did micro-focus adjustment on my 7D2 and found -1 worked and I felt my keeper rate increased. It seemed dialed in well on my XSi which doesn't have micro-focus adjustment

Thank you. I'm planning getting the USB dock, if I get the Sigma. To make adjustments in case of bad performance.

The problem is deciding which pictures to post. I have so many. I use the EF 100-400 MK-2. And I am strictly amateur but wow.
So which ones do I think show the lens ability to focus and catch high speed action. These are cropped.
