I had a 100-400 paired up with my 7d and it was great for surfing see here (external link)
but it was just a little too zoomed in for some other sports I like, I've since sold my 100-400 and purchaced a 70-200 f2.8 is2 and I love it, I do need to buy an extyender but I don't have enough money yet

S looks now its either 70-200 with 1.4 extender or 100-400 or 150-500 lol thus is giving me a headache lol. The reason why I am not considering the canon too much is because of the push pull system. If no tripod in placed how do u like it? Because it is pretty large and long once extended (that's what she said)) can you still aim and not lose your subject in the FF?

although i've never used the 100-400L...i don't get those that are worried about the push pull...i use my sigma like a push pull...i grab the end of the barrel, and use that to zoom...it's way easier than using the zoom ring...and is easier to stay stable

if you can afford the 100-400L, i don't really think you should go with the 150-500mm...don't get me wrong, it's a great bang for the buck lens, and when stopped down to f8, you probably can't tell much of a difference between the two...but i just think it's more for those on a limited budget

complaints for the sigma? I only have a few nit-picks.

its simply not as sharp as the canon L lenses. The colors are not always as 'right on' as the canon L lenses. the ONLY exception to that is if you have great conditions for light, and even then, you can still tell.

I've got the 50-500 OS and a 300 IS 2.8 L... I've shot the same scenes with 7Ds that are setup the same with each lens, and the 300 with a 2TC produces a better quality image that the sigma can. if it's dark, I yank the TC off, shoot wide open, and crop heavily, and still manage to get acceptable images.

is it $2500 better? maybe. it depends on what you plan to do with the image. If your going to make a big huge sports poster out of the image, yes, it's worth it. If your shooting for your online viewing collection, I don't think you will need the better image resolution the canon brings, unless you find yourself cropping a lot.

Just to be clear, I'm still VERY pleased with my 50-500OS, and still use it when I'm not having to crop much to fill the frame. or if it's dark enough that F8-F10 is too dark at ISO 1600 on the sigma :) The sigma is also a great travel lens, when you don't want to be bothered with carrying extras, or swaping lenses out. but it is a compromise on many levels to get that range, and the first time you rent a good prime superzoom, your going to think someone has smeard something on your screen when you look at your sigma images up close :(

Do you mean this 300 with TC?

Thought they didn't fit?

Because if I am considering the push pull I might sell my 24-105 to get the 28-300 the all in one sounds great since I travel a lot

nope, as I posted the 300 IS 2.8 L :) I know it's spendy, and large, and heavy... but the it's probably one of the, if not THE sharpest lens canon makes.

Some one around me hinted me on something very interesting.

If I were to save money on this lense which will be my secondary or even tertiary use, I could buy me a new bodyboard, since mine currently has more bends and wrinkle than madona. Any of the none L serie any good? Or the difference is night and day?

And if not, I think I will have to satisfy my needs with the L version.

I had never used a push pull before buying my 100-400 and I got used to it faster than a cat on catnip, it's easy as, the only problem with the design is the dust that it pulls on to the sensor. If you have the money or think you might have the money in the next year or so, wait until you can afford a 70-200f2.8 and an extender

Go for 400 or 500mm Zoom.
