Most of my bodies are Nikon which I shoot with Sigma lenses (e.g. 8-16, 120-300, and 300-800). Nikon and Canon simply don't have any lenses like these. However, I do shoot football and BIF with an A57 with Sony 80-400 because the combo is fast and sharp. The silver colored 80-400 actually causes a lot of curious Canikon users to ask me what it is. Then they hear the 10 FPS with continuous autofocus. Nice.

A bit off-topic, but what's IQ like of the 300-800, and what do you normally use it for? That is certainly a drool-worthy lens. In fact it's a real pity that both the 300-800 and 120-300 aren't made in Sony mount.

I will use it to shoot birds in flight but the main purpose is surf contests in Southern California.  Depending on how far out the waves are breaking, Sigma even makes a 1.5x teleconverter that works great with the lens.
