I'm keeping an eye on what Sigma is going to do with the 'Sports' lenses. I expect Sigma to come up with a few new lenses in this new category and unless they are completely blind to the popularity of Canon's 400/5.6, they should be coming up with something interesting and more affordable than Canon's latest lenses.
