Cheers for the info on case and extenders. The pics here and on some other threads have convinced me to start saving those pennies for this lens

Super shots, great examples of the pinnacle of Sigma engineering.

<sigh> I wish I had a reason to need this lens, and the money to pay for it - it looks like a stunner (and incidentally, this is the only long lens I feel like this about!)

Quick question there Cadwell...Do you not own the Canon 300 2.8 IS due to the fact that you own the Sigma 120-300 or is there another reason?

I wonder if it also helps that the Canon is twice the price of the Sigma, the optics are very close, and the Sigma has the added flexibility of being a zoom.

The price difference isn't a major consideration and IS doesn't matter to me. I find it interferes with my shooting style and I don't use it on the IS equipped long lenses I own such as the 100-400L and 600mm f/4L.

Everything in photography and lens choices is about compromises. The Canon 300mm f/2.8L IS USM is a stunningly good lens with superb optics and very fast AF. The Sigma loses out slightly in terms of optics and focus speed but only slightly. The Sigma's optics are excellent and the AF speed is still very fast - faster than any other zoom I own. For what I shoot I find the convenience of having the zoom capability outweighs the slight loss in IQ and focus speed.

If (God forbid) the Sigma failed on me I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.
