just found thread. This is my favourite lens of all time. I dont want to be sexist  ??? but boobs are a distinct advantage when hand holding this lens. I'm on my 3 rd one now. I just bought it a week ago. I sold the first one to get a Canon 100-400l as it was "the" lens to have and I was sorely disappointed it was soft in comparisson to my Bigma. So I dully sold that and rebought a Bigma. Now that Ive given up the wedding photography it was the first lens I sought out to replenish my equipment and Ive now got an immaculate second hand one. Its a great walkabout lens although sometimes a little impractical, like when you turn round and nearly give the dog brain damage dunting him with it. Yes its not brilliant in low light but then you wouldnt expect it to be really.

Sold mine a couple of years back to finance a second Canon 1D. A very good lens but can't say I miss it as I never used it much. I had always hoped to get some type of spectacular shots of Puffins or similar but it never happened.  I have a Canon 70-200 L plus a Extender which is enough for me.

Still a cracking lens considering you can use both the Sigma 1.4 and 2x converters with it.  :tup:
