IQ would be similar in most conditions, but you WILL NOT appreciate extra size and weight of Sigma over Nikon (monopod might be a good solution).

Most people use 70-300 for outdoor soccer and like it. i tried 70-300 myself and i liked it - light and fast focusing.

since nikon announced D600 and later 70-200 f/4 lens, a lot of 70-300VR are for sale at very attractive price.

Best regards,
Vlad
