Thank you, Linh! The sigma lens works fine with A9, its AF is fast enough for most BIF shots for me, although not as fast as the native lens FE100-400mm. I just got the Sigma 1.4x TC1401, it does not slow AF much with latest Sigma firmware update for MC11 (faster than with Canon 1.4x III that I used to use with this lens). Here is a shot today with the Sigma 1.4xTC. (Edit: forgot to mention that Sony A9 is an amazing camera, it shines with any lens I throw at it :-P:lol: )

That's an incredible shot, Shalu, especially with a teleconverter!

This Tawny Owl flew less than 2m above my head. Unfortunately I was surprised and scared a bit, so I didn't zoom-out fast enough and clipped the wings ...

Superb shot! I don't think the clipped wings detracts at all.

Beautiful bird and so well portrayed here.
Something about a white bird, and this is really nice.
Looks so effortless, suspended in the currents.
Beautiful eyes.

Thank you for your nice compliments, Mike!

Thank you for your thoughtful comments, Richard! Yes, this is an amazing bird to watch, but I still haven't seen it with any prey....yet.

Thank you, belas!

:-P:lol::-D
