  5. Maji,Warren,Holmes,
    Thanks for stopping by and the kind words. just out of curiousity, can you look at the first picture and actually tell that this was not taken with the Nikon lens? I personally cannot tell but always willing to learn something new if there is something to be pointed out. I've had this lens now for about 2 months, I rate it a 9.5 out of 10. I've only shot it with the 2x. I really want the Sigma 500 f4.5 but I don't think I could ever get rid of this lens. Thanks again for viewing.

    Stellar stuff Kevin. Are you using the Sigma 2x with the 120-300, I would always have thought that would be a rather soft combo so have only the 1.4TC to date ?
     
  8. Great shots Kevin, I have never seen this bird. I agree that the Sigma 120-300 with or with a TC is a great lens.
     
  9. Darren,
    I've only shot a portrait of granddaughter without the 2x on the lens, the 2x stays on full time. Its like a phenomenom to me that I don't see image degradation with the 2x and I don't see a difference in the focusing speed. This must be one of those magical combos that lines up just right. Thanks for viewing and the kind words.
