comment What are the real-world differences between Canon, Sigma and other third-party 70-200 f/2.8 lenses?
Not so sure about your 60D argument. According to snapsort.com, "The 60D has a slight edge (0.3 f-stops) in low noise, high ISO performance" and even the 5D Mark II gives me just 1.5 stops over the 500D. I'm not talking about the maximum allowed ISO setting but rather the 'safe' ISO setting for low noise shots. 3-stop stabilization does seem to make more sense, no?

I find that with the Tamron, 1/50-1/100 is normally sufficient to photograph slow moving subjects. Also I'm restricted by the mediocre ISO performance of the Canon 500D, so anything beyond ISO 800 gets pretty noisy. Based on this, it looks like I definitely need IS to handhold in the 1/50-1/100 range with 70-200.

I frequent the site, but surprisingly, they don't have a review of the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 OS yet.

I'm based in India, so renting options are very limited. But I understand what you mean. I might be able to get my hands on the Canon, but I was looking for some accounts of people's experience with the Sigma, given similar technical specs and a $800 difference.

comment How to choose rechargeable batteries for my Nikon superzoom camera?
Nope. A higher mAh rating will mean longer lasting batteries and more shots per charge. 2500 mAh will work just fine. (Also the measure of battery capacity is mAh - milliampere-hour; MHz is megahertz - a measure of frequency)

comment What solution should I use for cataloging photos for private sharing?
It also has some sweet face detection built in. Great if your photos feature people in it.
