Sigma 300-800mm users please come in
Would like to hear from users or owners of above lens to comment on the quality of this lens as I am contemplating to get this. It has the tele range of 800 mm which I needed and it also has a constant aperture of f6.3 across all ranges. I know it is a bit pricey at $9000 - $10K and hence would like to consider all views before I commit the purchase. Bonus is coming and can't help feeling my hands are itching to spend...

It's f5.6 constant, not 6.3.

Looks like nobody owns this lens in Sin... BTW, how did you get the $9-10k price? Was checking on BH and the price (aft. converting to sin @ 1.75) is about S$7.9k.
Wonder if Sigma (S) has one unit for "see see touch touch"... Tough to get someone to fork out such a sum of $$$ w/o touching/testing the thing.
