Re: Today's equivalent of the Canon 350D?

Perhaps used Canon 5D Mark 2 or Mark 3 in good condition will be the best option if you want high ISO, better autofocusing and overall better performance.
If you do not need a full frame then you may choose any modern beginner Canon DSLR which will be better than 350D.

Re: Polarizing Filter?

For the Sigma with this kind of focal length you have to have a very fast shutter speed but polarizing filter cuts the light and shutter speed comes 1/300 - 1/500.
I personally do not use polarizing filters for aviation photography.

Hi James, I am a Nikon user and can advise only on Nikon DSLR. As a starter mid-priced I would suggest you to get Nikon D3300 with 18-105mm lens for wide shots and Sigma 100-400mm Contemporary lens.[150-600mm on Nikon D3300] You do not need all that extra buttons for aviation photography.

Nikon D3400 is small and got less buttons but got very smart processor and good sensor which is more important.
Lenswise I would suggest to try Sigma 100-400mm art, new lens from Sigma which is looks sharp and portable at the same time.

Additional sharpness can be applied in post processing in photoshop.
