I'm still in two minds on buying this lens, my Sigma provides good reach and mated to the 70D the IQ has improved 10 fold (compared to the 550D), but I'm blinded by the whole "big white ownership" scenario, will a 100-400L (plus a 1.4X TC) be considerably, and noticably better than my 150-500 or would this Tammy provide better IQ at 600mm without a TC??? For me the prime 400mm is not really an option due to it's limitations of range.
Ohh the drama of all the decisions!!!
I really like the Barn Swallow.
I tried out a 300/2.8L IS II the other day, it was in the rentals section of a 'going out of business' Calumet location. I was amazed at how small and light it felt.
Of course, I've been using a 600/4L IS II for 1.5 years now.
I pulled out my debit card when the guy told me it was $3600, but he needed to check with the liquidation manager if that was the MkI or MkII price, and the manager said rentals weren't for sale. Damn!
