Hi Bryan. I bought the 120-400 this afternoon. [Wed] Tried it along with a Canon 100-400. The Canon was used & £1000. I wanted to come away with the Canon but after taking 50 or so shots witheach at different FL's & apertures, I just could not see a great deal of difference between the 2. The Canon AF was much faster, but I liked the OS on the Sigma better. Also the tripod collar on the Canon was awkward to get a good grip of for handheld, whereas the collar on the Sigma really helped to stabilize things handheld. At £650 with 3 years warranty, I think it's a good buy. The pictures you posted helped a great deal also. Many thanks to you & your daughter, & I will let you know how I get on with it in the real world. lee uk
