Re: Which 100-400 for outdoor sports?

Thanks for all the replies and info, everyone.  Well dang...I thought for sure the Canon 100-400 would get a hefty recommendation, but seems more votes for the Sigma and Tamron variants here.  Hmmm, really not sure which way to lean.

I'm thinking of crossing the Sigma off the list due to lack of tripod collar.  For the sports, it would be glued to the monopod most times.

Part of me thinks a 70-300 may be sufficient for reach also.  I'm not often starved for reach with my current setup, which is 280mm.  The 7D2 can get out there.  I've seen some pretty nice deals on 2nd hand 70-300L.
