Excellent pics Mike! I used to go to L&D 14 every year for the BE's when I lived in the Midwest, some of my favorite photography memories for sure!

Good catch on this photo! I am sure many people (including myself) would not have seen the owl being very invisible in the pines of the many needles!!

Bought a well used version to see what could be done with a 600mm. First actual picture of something other than the road sign down the street.

The view from the top of the mountain is the same for everyone, it doesn't matter how long it takes you to get to the top nor how often you fall nor how many people passed you on the climb. As long as you do not give up the reward is there for you.

Considering these were captured by stacking teleconverters, giving a 1680mm focal length, not unhappy with the results. The setup would only read 1200mm, accounting for the 2X III, but would not register the 1.4X III, so focal lengths and f stops have been manually adjusted. Still had auto focus, although it would hunt considerably if focus was not somewhat close to begin with.

I've never really enjoyed this lens and had considered getting rid of it. Last week I went and bought a Canon R6 and I'm glad I did not get rid of the Sigma. These three photos were taken at 600mm, something I've never been able to do with my prior cameras.

So the Sigma works with Canon TCs? I thought you had to have Sigma models. (To be fair, I have Mark I for both the 1.4X and the 2X, so maybe those don't work?)

All I want is a 10-2000 f/0.5L with no distortion that weighs 100 grams, fits in my pocket, and costs $300. Is that too much to ask?

Mine does with the mark III’s. I think I recall that a certain firmware update a few years ago Sigma broke the compatibility with them. Even though I have the dock, I purposely did not update. I’m not sure about the version II’s or I compatibility.

When I bought my Sigma 150-600C lens I also bought Sigma 1.4 and 2.0 TC's

Later I tried connecting my Canon 70-300 lens to the Sigma TC's and found it is NOT possible to connect/attach them to each other. I had to go back and buy Kenko brand to attach to my Canon 70-300 lens.

I can't believe how much difference it made to switch this lens from DSLR to a mirrorless. Completely blown away, especially at the long end of the lens.
