Very nice images. You must be very pleased with the photographs you're getting, I know I would be.

Stunning and very sharp photos gabebalazs.

Please could you post some 100% crops of your photos with this lens as I am very interested in the performance with a 2x tele converter?

Thanks

Here's a couple from a 50D with a Sigma 2x attached at f/8. Sharpness definitely suffers, as does AF tracking, but it's a usable combo.

Nice shots. I've shot 10s of thousands of bird images but never an owl. Always good to see an owl, especially a snowy.

gabebalazs: Amazing shots! Were they with the Sigma 1.4x? I need to get one of those. My Sigma 2x is around six years old, does anyone know if there's been an updated version released since then?
