In reply to AlexBakerPhotoz, Oct 4, 2012

Thanks for your response Alex.  Renting is certainly a consideration.  I have looked into it but there aren't too many options from Toronto for the time I need.  I can't rent from lensrental as I am Canadian.  It would also cost me close to $700 for the two weeks.  However, one option that I just thought of is to rent the lens for one day to see what I like before I buy.  I'm pretty sure I can rent the 300mm lens for a day but probably not sigma lenses.

I recommend that you rent the one you think you will like best before you buy anything this expensive.  I myself have a Tamron 200-500 f/5-63 FX that I bought used at Adorama that is pretty wonderful considering it only cost me $650 and I don't do much long reach stuff.
