    yar it's quite light, but putting it on ur 20D, wif ur grip, fully extended, then handheld for half hour, u'll get wat i mean.

    But you not going to hold that lens fully extended and stay there for half hour rite.. I have no problems with 10D with grip + 100-400mm IS lens.. that one is much heavier than with a 70-300mm sigma lens...

    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.
