Sigma 300 f2.8 + 2xTC

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by Gareth_R, Jun 13, 2007.

  1. Does anyone have any experience using a sigma 2x TC with the Sigma 300 f2.8 EX DG HSM ?
    If so was the quality acceptable or is it too poor to consider.

    Thanks Gareth

    One of the guys on the Cafe, Papa85, uses that lens and TC combination with excellant success. For further information, send him a private message for his opinions.
  3. I don't have the DG lens, but I do have the non-DG. I don't use too many lenses with a 2x tc, but the long primes are sometimes exceptions. This lens is very good with the 2x tc if you close down about 2/3 of a stop. I have found that the key to getting the best out of Sigma lenses is to use matched Sigma converters. Hope this helps.
  4. Thank you for the responses. It looks like this could be a viable option for 12 months or so while I save up for a 600 f4 Nikon. Maybe a VR version will be out by then :smile:
