    In your pros/cons I think you're missing a big quality difference between the Canon & the Sigma.

    Oh yes, and the Canon has Image Stablisation - you should be able to handhold this lens at 400mm using 1/125th.

    Cheers,

    Colin

    Opinions: Sigma 50-500 or Canon 100-400L

    I'm looking for a big zoom lens. Let me know what you guys think.

    I have allready tried the canon yesterday (a big thanks to Dan Valentine), and I will try the sigma somewhere next year.

    my pro's and cons atm:

    Sigma 50-500

    pro
    -Bigger range
    -cheaper (and I mean like 500)
    -better for the shorter pics (the 50mm end)
    -twist zoom (what is the right word?)
    con
    -less lightstrong (higher f)
    -heavier (if I'm right)
    -Not weather sealed (so air goes in and out)

    Canon 100-400 L IS
    pro
    -more lightstrong
    -weather sealed
    -lighter
    con
    -push pull zoom (I will probably get used to it, but I don't like it)
    -much more expensive
    -100mm minimal is a lot (it becomes 160mm)
    -less zoom at the far end
Working...
