I have the same need, after some thought I'm leaning towards getting the DA(L) 55-300. I have the front mountable 1.6x Canon TC-52B so I would end up with 480mm losing maybe two stops. This combo would be light, less than half the Bigma. Cost even less than half.

And I keep telling me the IQ is not far behind. At least after a 5 mile hike shooting handheld this combo would be better...
