Thanks again NHL. I have been going back and forth for over a week between the Bigma, Sigma 70-300, and Canon 100-400. Hopefully, I will have a good experience with Lensrentals and I will try one of the others a little later this year. I hate to spend money renting but it is so hard to choose or know what would be best. If this experiment works out I may add a longer zoom to my collection next spring.

I am getting the 100-400 for two weeks. I'll let you know how the it goes.

Andy

In case you're still wondering how fast the AF is on the Bigma... I just found this sequence of images while editing my vacation pictures from last month:

Thanks for the post NHL. Those are cool shots. You've just about got me sold. I just shot some soccer and baseball today with the Canon 100-400 but they are still in the camera. Not so sure I did too good the first time using the push pull but the extra reach is fun to play with. Hopefully I can try to rent the Bigma next time as it will be a while yet before I am ready to by a bigger lens.
