There must be something special on the other side of that river! That's another great opportunity well taken Colin.
We used to see them in the river as kids but it must be 40+ years ago now.

Looking for an affordable backpack to carry my Sigma 150-600mm C, 7D mk2 and 3 other lenses + 430EZ flash unit, what do you guys use?
At this moment I travel light with only camera and sigma lens, with my black rapid strap, works fine, but sometimes miss the opportunity for landscape or macro shot.
Secondly to make is easier to prepare for a walk because everything is already packed.

any ideas?, thanks in advance.

Regards Antwan

I use Lowepro flipside 300. I can get in the sigma attached to my 7D II with the lens hood on plus 15-85 and TC1401. There is also the room for a flash if you wanted.

Filam,

I bought Spider Lenscal and works very well indeed, with the USB dock you can fine-tune your lens, the value of MFA for the Sigma software is not the same as in camera as I found (more like 2:1, so double camera MFA as input for the Sigma USB dock software).
For 2.9 and 6 meters it is easy to read but 15 meters and infinity are difficult to read even more on 150-250mm focal lengths, i kept these values the same as for 6 meters and that seems close enough.
I used JPEG with custom picture style with maxed sharpens and contrast and ISO 100.

Overall sharpness is increased for sure, next I need to work on my (rather lousy) hand-holding technique :-), since I recently bought the 7D2.

Thank you Sidknee, Lowepro flipside 300 or 400 will be a good option, 300 even better since I like to travel lightweight, I like Lowepro because of the anti theft design.

Holy COwl !!!

Is that sharp !!!!

I wonder how much degradation at 600mm.

I've had my 150-600 for about 2 weeks and have not had the time to play with it.

How much space (feet) did you need to calibrate the lens?

I was about to ask the same. I have the dock and just got my Focal Pro, wanting to dial in this lens.
