300mm 2.8 options ?
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.
