Nice shot considering the lighting. Man I wish I had a 2.8 300 so I could still get some AF when I have the 2x on there....

Thanks again for the kind words folks. :-)

I've had the Siggy 300 for about a year now and truly believe it to be a very underrated lens. It does front focus a little bit, but within range of the MF on my 50D. I only realised a couple of weeks ago that different MF adjustment is needed when a TC is attached. Effectively the camera sees each combination as a 'new' lens. So having tweaked the '600mm' combination, I'm now more happy with the focus accuracy. It still hunts a bit with the 2.0x in low light, but not too bad.
