When stepping up from a 70-300 zoom to a 300mm f4 prime lens (or for Sony users, the 70-400), I realize the price for either Canon or Nikon 300mm F4 IS/VR new I can get a used Sigma 300mm F2.8 prime or 120-300mm F2.8 non OS zoom lens for the same price or perhaps cheaper from sites such as evil bay.

I don't know about other lenses but you don't really want most Sigma lenses announced before January 2010.
