I do ok with the non-IS 400mm f/5.6L, but then again, the price is less than the Sigma 500mm. I believe that my keeper rate will increase a lot with an IS lens. Meanwhile I hone my technique on old-time lenses. It took me a while before I had any decent BIF photos.

That is a really hard branch of photography. I dabble in it occasionally. The need is to actually hold the critters in the viewfinder. The birds around here don't fly like that except mallards and they cooperate by flying at 70mph flat out!
