I recall reviews saying the Sigma 120-300 had sluggish autofocus, to the point of being prohibitive for sports, has that been the experience of owners here?

If the Af is as good on the 120-300mm as it it is on the Sigma 100-300mm f/4 . Then no , it is not sluggish .

Prohibitive for sports? No way. It's fast.

That said, I rate the Canon 300 f2.8, Sigma 300 f2.8, Sigma 100-300 f4, Canon 100 f2, Canon 85 f1.8, Canon 17-55 f2.8 IS..lenses like those a bit faster.

Dare I say, the 17-55 f2.8 IS might be the fast AF'ing lens I've ever used. Weird huh!? :D That thing is a zipper! [Or maybe Canon just put some AF steriods into my particular unit.]

I think my 50-150mm might be a tad faster then my 100-300mm . But both get the job done :lol: !
