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?


Here's another test for you. While it's obviously not perfectly condusive to bird photography, maybe it will help! This time we've got 9 pictures. Full frame of the moon at 600, 840 (600+1.4x, TC-1401), and 1200 (600+EX DG 2x), followed by the same three photos zoomed in to almost having the moon fill the frame, and then a further zoomed in shot. All shots were taken at 1 stop down from wide open, which ended up being f9 (600mm), f13 (840mm), and f18 (1200mm). Exposure was adjusted only by changing the shutter speed. All shots taken on a tripod, and triggered with the Canon Connect app on my phone to avoid as much camera shake as possible.

Photos were exported from LR at 3500px on the long side, regardless of original after-crop resolution. Then you are obviously looking here at a 1024px version from Flickr. I can provide the 3500px images or RAWs if anybody has any interest in them.


Once again, I created a .gif of the three most cropped in photos. They are in order; 600, 840, 1200. You can definitely see an increase in resolution with each step. How much would you notice it in real life? Probably not a lot...but it is there. https://gfycat.com/Sho​ckingUnselfishCirriped (external link)


EDIT: Final three images (most cropped in) are in a separate post...forgot about the 8 image limit.

Still working on getting the feel for this lens. Walked around the yard today for willing victims.

Finally the SEOs that are only 20 mins from home make an appearance when I'm there looking! :)

Thank you for providing these shots, i'm impressed because from my PC monitor i cannot see to much of a difference.
The more I read the more I get the impression that on full frame camera a TC might me better than heavy cropping in software.

So i decided to order one coming weeks and do some testing on my equiment so see what result I can have, than I can keep the TC for birding.

Again thanks and keep on shooting :-)

Does anybody know if a Canon 2x tc ii will fit on this lens? I've used a Kenko 1.4 and 2x and both worked. Sadly, both of my tc's have disappeared, so I'll have to replace them. Actually, probably only the 2x, since I use it for ISS Solar transits.

I know what you mean, I've had six at one time all around me and don't know where to shoot. just do a 360 rapid fire and hope for the best.

Question:

I use a shoulder strap akin to the Black Rapid and love it - it attaches to the lens tripod collar. And if I switch lenses out in the field - I like how the lens is available at my side when ready to switch again.

However when I do switch lenses - my camera body no longer has a strap and my right hand gets fatigued carrying it.

Does anyone have a DSLR body hand strap they like that does not interfere (too much) with the tripod mount - or in any case please point me to a convenient hand strap you have good experience with.

Thank-you
