Just wondering how the Sigma 120-300 f/2.8 EX OS (non-sport) works coupled with 7d mark 2...

I would be especially interested in the AF speed/accuracy for moving targets moving towards the camera compared to 70d. Any comments much appreciated... thanks...

Sigma 120-300 f/2.8 DG OS HSM Sport - Firmware?

Hi Guys, just connected my Sigma 120-300 Sport to the computer via USB Dock for some customisation, and this message pops up.

Looks like an updated firmware is available for the lens.

When I clicked on the 'Detailed Information' tab, this is what it shows:

Looks like the new firmware will add support for the newly launched TCs - C-1401 and TC-2001.

But, I'm currently using the lens with the below older TCs:

APO Teleconverter 1.4x EX DG
APO Teleconverter 2x EX DG

So, will upgrading the lens firmware from the current 1.01 to 1.02 make it incompatible with my existing TCs?

Pls help!

I believe others have been using this firmware with the older Sigma TC's (are the new ones even on the market?)

One more from my 5dmk3 + x1.4, i've not bothered taking it off as the image quality looks to be ok for me.

Great shots all in this page.

Shadowblade: LOVE ur temples.. i'm always amazed in the effect such long lenses views, then colors and mood are so intense.

Gabe: hope i'm not OT, but i guess u're the expert :D
and maybe could be useful for other euro-people.
i'm planning to go catch pelicans next months.
have you ever been in south-croatia shores, or in northern greece lakes?
there's a lot of birding links, yet i'm not sure about best places and seasons for spotting that big white guys!
