You guys talked me into one. Arrived this morning and had to test it out. This little guy helped me out by taking a bath in my driveway.

Handheld at 600mm. I for one am impressed with this lens.

HEADS UP! UN-SCIENTIFIC TEST INCOMING!

I recently acquired the older Sigma EX DG 2x teleconverter at no cost, and wanted to test it out. Since my cameras obviously won't focus at f13 (widest aperture at f6.3 + 2x tele), it's tough to get good real world examples. So, I set up my tripod on my balcony and tried to capture some moon shots. I used Live View, and the Camera Connect app on my phone to focus. I took many shots at 600mm wide open (f6.3 without tele, f13 with tele), and also at f8 with just the lens, and f16 with the teleconverter. Stopping down obviously increased the sharpness. I was shooting at slow shutter speeds as I wanted to keep the ISO low. I was able to shoot at about 1/20 without motion blur from the moon's movement at 1200mm. 1/10 or lower and you could see motion blur.

More reasons this is not a perfect test....I exported all the photos from Lightroom at 3500 pixels on the long side. This includes down-sizing the original images that are larger than that, and upsizing the crops to the same resolution. On top of that, it is uploaded to Flickr, and then downsized by Flickr to 1024 pixels so it can be shown on this forum!

I am attaching 6 shots below. One is the uncropped moon as it looks at 600mm and 1200mm on my 5D IV. The second set is cropped down just to the height of the moon. The third set is a more zoomed in shot showing detail.

Take from it what you will, but I think there is noticeably more detail using the 2x extender than there is with the bare lens cropped in. I'm curious if the newer TC 2001 has an even bigger different (I've heard there is!)

Nice tests, that trigger an old debate with myself.
Since I have a canon 6D the 600mm end is sometimes not enough (even since i'm seriously lacking any ninja skill to approach without scaring the birds :-) ).

The question is if the Sigma TC-1401 will produce better results than a picture cropped to match the 840mm picture.
Can you run a test on that?
I 'm very interested about the outcome and it might give me the push to buy one.

Can you do this?

Many thanks in advance.

Who else uses the TC-1401?, on full-frame body?
