Went out with the TC on this afternoon, still not really impressed with the amount of hunting the focusing seems to need with every press of the af on. Occasionally it did work OK but I can't seem to work out why or when it's going to. I missed nearly every bird I went for. I am also aware that the light has been pretty poor mostly so that will be a factor.

A change from birds (as much as I like them)

Kite surfers taking to the air, enjoying the strong winds and waves in Lyme Regis today.

My experience with the Sigma 150-600c and the matching 1.4 tc has been that it will only focus reliably in very bright contrasty light. I would never consider this combo for bids in flight. UK_MARK has had good success with the 150-600 and tc. You might want ask him about the parameters with this combo.
