Thanks guys, interesting stuff. I too wish someone would give a hands-on "from the field" kind of review though ~ from real shooting circumstances to print (or web) work.
I really loved the Canon, the IQ, performance, etc. was all great. I have considered a used (or even new) copy, but now seeing this one on the horizon, I'd like some more information before I make the final purchase.
But I'm just wondering if the Sigma performs closely, or as good as the Canon (in low lighting settings, street shooting, quick focusing, etc) ... considering the smaller size and weight, which for me, is a very big factor at the moment. Having recently travelled and lugged around the 100-400 (3 lbs. - for a much different use obviously) ... I can say, with some authority, it did cut back on some of my enjoyment for the long hike/walk kinds of outings.
Yeah, it looks like (Amazon?? I looked at so many sites I cannot recall) had it for $899 or thereabouts for the Nikon mount.
Looking forward to what shakes down
