300mm 2.8 options ?
Feb 9, 2014

I am looking at options for a 300 2.8 lens.  The main purpose is youth sports.  I am an enthusiast, i.e. I don't make any money from photography.

Currently, I have the Canon 70-200isII, and the Canon 100-400.  Both are great lenses.  Sadly, the Canon 300 2.8 isII is just not within my budget.

So my options are:

1.  Sigma 120-300 2.8 OS

2.  Sigma 300 2.8

3.  used version 1 Canon 300 2.8

4.  Just rent the Canon when needed.  This is an option, but I would probably rather buy a lens and then sell it later - as a means of "renting" it.

I'm not especially concerned with image stabilization, since I will mostly be at high shutter speeds.  My main concern is picture quality.  I have had trouble finding comparisons between the 120-300 and the 300 prime.
