Maybe my standards are lower, or the wonderful sigma primes fit that need for me. I want an inexpensive longer zoom. Why is the $1000 70-300 my only option? I want a $250-400 one, like there are on every other mount

Same here, my 55-210 is not enough reach for my needs but i have to work with what i have. The 70-300 isn't a big step up in reach and the FE100-400 is WAY out of my budget. I've seen many users reports quality control issues with 70-300, not with the FE100-400.

I hope one day either sigma or tamron can make their super zoom 150-600 for E-mount. Even their 100-400 released last year for DSLR, sells for $800, it would be great options.

Maybe one day...

I though the big Sigma Canon zooms worked on e-mount with an MC11?

they do- both the 150-600 and 100-400 work pretty well with MC11 (latest firmware) and a6300/a6500. I've been using the 100-400 for a while now and really like it - my only regret is that sometimes i wish i'd gotten the 150-600 for the extra reach as adding at 1.4 TC to the 100-400 works well, but both the 100-400 and 150-600 are 5-6.3 so i end up losing some light that i wouldn't with the 150-600. That said, the 100-400 is a fair amount smaller and lighter so... :shrugs:
