Thank you so much for the replies! Deeply appreciate them. I have the A7r3 and the 400mm DO2. But I just bought the SigmaMC-11 on Sunday and will try it out soon to see how it fares. Thanks again!

It's been really cool for me to stare at what can be done with a 400DO Ii and also read so many informative posts. I feel I ought to try bung something back at ya'll. Here's some from blighty,with a 1.4extiii and a 1D iv as the body. I feel i'll need to upgrade the camera to really see what the 400can do with the 2x. Only had the lens a few months but love it.

This image while not being perfect was a stella moment for me. The european sparrow hawk hunts fast and low over our hedges,we get few chances to catch this bird at full tilt hunting. I was wondering around in the snow,when I just got this glimpse of an underwing through a tiny gap in the hedge. An incredible bit of luck meant I was standing next to a gap in the hedge. She was absolutely tanking I virtually threw the lens at her got off one frame in the clear, the second she was already past the gap due to the speed she was moving at. Frankly, I nearly ended up on me butt was sliding around allways in the snow and it was complete disbelief that I got her in frame let alone even half sharp. This take was so extreme I honestly don't know if I could have moved my old 3002.8 fast enough to grab a chance at this. The hawk must of thought I was a right idiot spinning around like a top ,she actually came back to see what I was, up too. lol

here ya go,the last time I had a chance like this I miss ID'd my subject, and missed the shot completely,so nice to not do the same again. I'll own the ID but give all credit to the lens and camera for the shot,I just threw the thing and hoped :lol:

Here's a little mate of mine from our feeders. This is a long tailed tit mouse,normally referred to as a long tailed tit I like the old name it's the one I grew up with. Quite jumpy flightly little things,but they are family guys. That family stays in one place for generations,so some of this group they number around 10 will possibly have known us for all their lives. Which means that they are very chilled with us now,during this shoot they were landing right beside me. Lovely little guys all but look like a cartoon with the fluffed up body for the cold that rediculaously small beak and a massive tail,god I love this little bird. They make an amazing dome nest of moss and spiders webs,lined with feathers. The coolest nest it stretches as the kids grow(they can have big broods),yet retains that dome to keep all the kidlets safe,too cool

Here ya go don't get many chances in the snow sadly here

As good as the first one is I prefer the second. Looks so cute and cuddly. Draws me into the shot. I think it show the benefit of having the birds so comfortable with you.

Hey both thanks for the kind replies,lads wack me your first names,would you be so kind,please??

he ha trust now there's a thing to graft for in the animal kingdom !! I suppose,those little longtails do pretty much trust me,so maybe that made my life trying to capture an image a little easier. There is no hide i'm just stood with me mates,if they were untrusting that image would be harder won,they normally are very flighty and tricky little guys,but iif i'm honest there is alot of unseen time behind the image above of the longtail.

The spar,a female sparrow hawk is a gift and a testiment to what the 400DO is can do ,for me that is the moment when all the graft all the reseach came to fruition.


I was simply left asking how..how did that happen?? I repeat the camera and lens own that image not me. Seeing that image, and believing I couldn't have moved my beloved 300f2.8is that fast(I've shot with nothing else for ages.... i do believe what I'm saying) to grab that image ,was huge for me.
But no denying the luck.............. pinning down where a sparrow hawk hunts and to be where a gap in the hedge was at the right time,luck guys. I did properly nearly end up on my butt though I must have been hilarious to watch.:lol:

I ought pop a hare up huh,this is recent as framed no crop . Dillon is a ref to me childhood a TV series called the magic roundabout and my love of a seriously cool hippy type dude called Dillon,every now and then a hare takes me back all those years

Correction to my above statement, after significant use.
The 0.58 firmware update is horrible with the a9 and a7Rii for adapting the 400DOii.
I went back to 0.57 and all is good again.
Not that there are any other Sony/400DOii users here :) But wanted truth

Visited the local zoo using first time this combo - 400mm f4DO2 and A7R3 using Sigma MC11 adapter. When I added a 2X TC to get closer, the AF went haywire. Otherwise bare lens itself, the AF worked - most of the time.
