This post is too funny. I just posted something similar the other day with the announcement of the Sigma 120-300mm! I want to see the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L II w/1.4X go up against that Sigma. Put all three in one review and it would be very interesting to see all of the results!!!!!!! (In this case I am betting on the Canon kickin some %&@!!!!!!

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!! The Canon Kicks the Sigma's butt with the 2X extender and completely BLOWS IT AWAY with the 1.4X.
Gee...you can pick up the Canon lens for about $2100 and I think the extender is about $500...so you can save
$900.00, have way better image quality, faster focusing, have a smaller, lighter, more versatile setup and tons more resale value...um..exactly WHY would anyone buy the Sigma?
