Oh boy, just ordered the new sports edition for high school football and sports this season...gets here on Monday!

Please shoot some "under the lights " with the 7d I would love to hear about the focus speed and your keeper rate.

Just watched your video! My refurb came yesterday but I didn't get home until midnight so I only got the outside box open. I haven't taken the white box out yet. Hoping to do that tonight after work. Going away on vacation with the family thu-sun so won't be able to try it out until Monday! Sucks. I also bought a refurb 7d and the 2x Sigma tc so I should be all set!

haha thanks gabe.. hopefully I can get somewhere near the sharpness of your pics!

I've just gone to play with the USB dock on windows 8 and couldn't get it to work.. However, if you run the .exe as administrator, it all works fine..

Bit of an oversight from sigma.. hopefully they fix it as it could confuse anyone who's trying to use it..

Nice shot Pepe!!Are you still building guitars??

Hi CR, yes. I am semi-retired, so the number of guitars per year is low.


It's not a photo until you print it! :cool:

I'm thinking of getting the 120-300 sport for basketball this season.
Will have to see how much money I can save up for it.

How in the world have you guys been attaching the Canon TCs to this lens? I am a Nikon shooter and Nikon TCs don't attach at all. I don't have a Canon TC anymore but from the online pics they seem to have similar physical characteristics

Argh!!!!


Desire to learn; a camera & a few other things.
