They Look SOFT to me

Haha, very nice shots! very sharp!

I'm going to say this, you can't look at sigma samples shot at 1/125 sec at 600mm and compare them to shots taken at 1/1600 or better and come to a conclusion! that is comparing apples to eggs! the only shot that comes close is the last 2 eagle shots at 1/200 sec and those are ideal shooting conditions with a very contrasty subject against a white background! the focus probably locked onto that before you even started to focus

Also, the canon is on a 1D mk4, probably the best focusing camera in the world with a larger sensor, the sigma was shot with a 50D not the best to say the least.

Listen, i'm sure the new canon lens is better than the sigma, it better be at that price, but if you are going to compare the 2 lenses you can just look at different posts and say that is a good comparison.
