So i'm in a deilemma and I can't seem to make up my mind on what to do. Right now I own a Canon 400mm 5.6 which I regularly use with a 1.4 tc just to have more reach. I'm an absolute stickler for sharpness and I probably throw out a lot more images than I need to but if its not tack sharp I don't want it. I really could use the extra reach and use with a tc. So my question is. Do I buy a Tamron or Sigma 150-600 new and save a little, or do I buy a used version 1 Canon 500 or 600 prime because I don't have the budget to drop 10-12k on a new lens. Thanks for your advice, I keep going round and round and can't make up my mind.

Sigma 500 f4 pro? Half the price of the Canon and according to one detailed review too close to call in image quality.
