So you're not happy with the Sigma 70-300 APO then, and looking to replace it? If so, then you probably need to qualify what it is exactly you want to do with the new lens. Do you need a faster lens, more compact, more focal range, etc? Your Sigma APO is considered a pretty good lens for the money, but there are better in that zoom range available - it really depends how much you want to spend.

any zoom in excess of 2X is basically inferior

What are you using this lens on? I shoot with a D70, and it's a pretty decent lens, as Rambler states, for the money. OK, not as good as my 80-400 VR, but that's in another completely different ballpark.
