Another butterfly imaged with the Sigma 120-300 + 1.4 APO TC. Specs: D2HS (what a fantastic camera that was!!), 1/800, f5.6, ISO 200. Even with only a 4MP sensor, check the detail. Note the parasitic Long-legged Fly on the right upper wing (less than 1/4 inch in life size).

I am very happy with the 150 and it handles the Sig 1.4Tc extremely well. I will have a look for some photos taken with the TC attached but got now here are a couple of shots taken with the naked 150. I'm not sure if I have posted these on the Cafe before but here we go anyway.
Cheers.
Mike

Here's something a little different. About ten years ago, the "three Jims at Naturescapes.net (Jim Urbach, Jim Neiger, and Jim Zipp) started advocating using long lenses for macro work. I made many butterfly images using my sigma 500 f4.5, taking advantage of the increased working distance with the bigger butterflies. For this image of a Zebra Swallowtail, I used the sigma 120-300 + Sigma 1.4 APO TC, imaged at 360mm, f4, View attachment 1597008 1/800, ISO 200 on an ancient coal-fired D2X (one of the finest cameras I ever owned) in my garden in 2008. This image was sold to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, and ended up being the cover image on the 2014 Illinois State Park and Recreation Area Guidebook.
Very, very nice! jt

JT, just eyeballing it I'd say I cropped out at least 2/3 of the frame, so 16MP cropped out.



Thanks Mike, your shot above with the 35 f1.4 is great, terrific detail & sharpness.
Thank you for the complement Bill. So your image is 24MPx cropp is 2/3=8MPx. Nice sharp shot excellent detail.
