Compared to Sigma's f2.8200-500mm, I think 300-800 is less ridiculous. Here is a link to a shot ofthesigmonster beingmounted up. You can see the proportion of its size in relation to the photographer and the other gears: http://www.pbase.com/liquidstone/image/41828735

oh ya. i've seen that guys pics before. he does amazing work with his 300-800. i've seen him stack teleconverters on that lens and shoot the most amazing shots of the moon. but back to wackyroger's original situation. neither lenses are going to fit his needs because they both require very study tripods and will definitely limit his mobility. correct me if i am wrong but i think wackyroger is a free roaming kinda shooter.
