I've been holding off for sigma to release a 70-200 f2.8 for the Sony emount cameras but I recently noticed that they had released a 100-400 f5.6 / 6.3...

My question is.... Would it be worth waiting sigma to release a 70-200 f2.8? Or is the sigma 100-400 f5.6/6.3 just as good a lens?

I saw a few videos on YouTube saying the 100-400 isn't really a lens for indoors

Like others have said they are lenses for very different purposes, not interchangeable really at all. I would not use the 100-400 indoors either, and its maximum aperture is rather small, and I cant think of any reason someone would need 400mm indoors unless you are in a mansion with reeeeaallly long rooms or something. Maybe indoor horse races? But then the max aperture will hold you back, yes.

You could also check out Tamrons 70-180 f2.8, it is much smaller than the Sigma 100-400 for Sony, I own both of these lenses and both are very sharp. I was looking at Sigmas 70-200 as well, but in pictures online it looks massive, as 70-200 lenses traditionally are. Tamrons 70-180 is quite small in comparison, which I love.
