Nice to see someone that owns both lenses add some input to this, I think this is why he needs to look at both and see what he prefers assuming of course he really does need the extra zoom.
I started saving for the Sigma myself and then started to lean more towards the 100-400L, my priorities have since changed as I am getting more into macro so want to upgrade my 100mm EF Macro to the L version although a high quality zoom will be next.
I would be interested and I am sure the OP would like to know why you prefer the Sigma over the Canon lens, people I have spoken to find the weight of the Bigma (as it is known) to be a bit of an issue but then a monopod solves that.
