Sy

I use a 150-600 + 1.4II on a 5DIV and I get AF @ f9 @840mm . Ironically it wont AF on my A7rIII. The only thing different on the A7RIII is I am using a Sigma MC11 adapter to use on the Sony. I have some testing ahead to try to figure out how I can get it to AF using my Sony camera. Another thing to take into consideration is the FW update your running.

**edit** I should add my Sig MC11 has no issue AF'ing using my Canon Glass on my Sony, so maybe the culprit is the TC or MC11.. Like I said, need to do some testing to get to the bottom of it.

Now what I am concerned about is will it work as well as it does on the 5DIV on the R5 ?

Here's an example of of the 150-600 + 1.4II on a 5DIV with AF

Follow up, after running some tests it appears the issue of not AF'ing on the A7rIII is the TC . Without TC AF is fine

Nice capture! I hope you can someday save up the $$$ and get either the Sigma 1.4 TeleConverter or the 2.0 TC (sometimes called TeleExtender)

I appreciate your response, early indications from your initial testing on your R6 looks positive. BTW what FW are you running on your C 150-600.

By all means post up some of your images with & without TC when you get out in the field, and share your thoughts. Another thing to take into consideration is the camera settings your using for action.

Hope other's using the R5 will shine in

Sorry it's taken a bit to respond. I had to dig the dock out to see what firmware, and see it's 2.00. I have purposely not updated it beyond that as it had worked fine, and thought I had heard that in later updates it ceased it to be compatible with a Canon teleconverter.

I had a chance to briefly test it in the yard today as our early season snow started to melt and neighborhood birds came back out. The lens focuses faster without the tele converter than with it. I have the R6 set up with double back button focus, 1 for single point spot, and the other for animal eye, and use mechanical high speed in short bursts. I had to go back and forth quite a bit. When it locked on to a bird, it was great. Both images below are just the adapted lens.

This one was taken through a double pane window, so there is a hit to the IQ (it was not even 20 degrees F, so I was limiting time outside.)

And a sample from the R6 + Canon adapter + Canon 1.4X III + 150-600C, and cropped about 33%.

My previous posted images were all taken with the 5D IV paired with the Sigma 150-600C, but this one's with the lens paired with the R5 if anyone's interested in how the lens performs with this new body. A heavily cropped as with the previous images posted.
