Default Selling my Sigma 150-600mm Canon Mount

Hey ya'll, I've decided this lens is too much for me 95% of the time, so I'm putting it up for sale. It's a Sigma 150-600mm Sport lens for Canon mounts. Sucker is built like a tank, and weighs about as much as one too. Comes with the original box, case, lens cover and rear cap, neoprene camo sleeve, and a fancy B+W 105mm filter.

I can't really find anything wrong with it as far as blemishes, handling marks, or dust/fungus on any of the elements - a true testament to the few times I've had it out in the field. Anyways, if you're interested, I can do 1400 American dollars, or I'd also be interested in trading for a Canon 100-400L IS II, plus a bit of cash on my end if needed.

Thanks!

Must turn off computer and go back to working around the house. Delete from memory.

(I've been eyeballing the contemporary version of this lens for quite some time now).

I don't have much on my phone or work computer, but here is a link to a flickr group dedicated to this particular lens to give you an idea of its capabilities.

I'll try to post some of my pics with it when I get home.

Snapped this pic a few minutes ago with it. Had to lower the quality quite a bit to post it here, but just a quick sample.

Have you ever handheld this, or is it too heavy? One reason I've been considering the contemporary version is the weight.

You can hand-hold it in decent or good light, but you probably wouldn't want to do it all day. I bought a gimbal for it if I was going to be using it for a long time, or I'd use a mono-pod. The pic I snapped above was hand-held from a running diesel truck, in fairly low light at probably 350-400mm. The OS (optical stabilization) helps a lot if you needed to hand-hold it. It's definitely got some weight to it.
