Re: Canon ef 70-300 IS L for bird photography?

I'm starting to lean towards the Tamron 100-400mm or the Sigma 100-400mm.  I have read so many reviews on these two lens over the last 24 hours. Both lenses seem to be subject to good and bad copies which is a little worrying. I have seen negative reviews in regards to the Sigmas Optical stabilization and focusing speed and the softness of the Tamron at 400mm where I would be shooting with this lens the majority of the time. Get a good copy of either of these lenses and they are apparently stellar.
