A little longer... Sigma Bigma vs Sigma 170-500mm

OK ladies and gents and photogs alike, I think that the comparison between the Tokina 80-400mm and the Sigma 135-400mm gave me a good idea of what to expect, but I am curious if it will leave me wanting more. So I am asking the same of you that have experiance with the two Sigma lenses in the title. I am interested in the long end, the 300-500mm range, prolly even more the 400-500mm range. I figure if I am going to go all out, I may as well go all out.
Thanks in advance for any input you may have, and pictures to back up your comments would be greatly appreciated.

I have seen many approvals of the Bigma. I personally bought a 170-500 Sigma, and was very disappointed with it. The images (on film at the time) were very soft. I went back to my 400/5.6, ancient though it may be.
