F*/FA* 250-600/5.6 ED [IF] for Sigma 500/4.5 owner?

I own the Sigma 500/4.5 APO EX. A great piece of glass I certainly love. The photo in the lens review database is of my own copy. It works perfectly and I have no focus issues at all.

I know that F*/FA* 250-600 owners are few and far between, but would purchasing that lens, if you already own the Sigma, be a stupid or good decision? I do care about focus speed and sharpness. If the lenses are roughly in the same ballpark then I know what to do.

Go look in the 300+ group. there is a guy there that has the 250-600 and has had the sigma 500 4.5 also. His name is Mark i think. Twards the end of the listing he is showing some humming bird pics with the 250-600.
