Re: Which 100-400 for outdoor sports?

Just a thought: Have your tried an Extender 2x on your 70-200/2.8L? I have neither of these, so cannot say how this combination would compare to any of your three listed options.

If you are accustomed to the zoom and focus ring directions of Canon lenses, Sigma lenses  work like Canon lenses in this regard, while Tamron lenses’ zoom and focusing operate like Nikon lenses, the direct opposite of Canon lenses. When shooting active subjects, this can be important.

My wife and I share a Sigma 150-600mm Sport, which is optically wonderful, so I have a generally favorable opinion of Sigma lenses. (I/We have not used a Sigma 100-400mm lens.) She also uses, and likes, a Sigma 24-35mm Art lens.

By accident of availability, I learned to use Canon and Nikon DSLRs at the same time. I love specific lenses made by both Canon and Nikon, too much to quit either system. Dabbling with Leica-M is fun, too. I am, certainly, not an expert.
