I searched and could not find an answer so I was hoping someone with experiance could tell me if the canon 2x tc MK 1 works with the sigma 180mm macro lens?

In the TC sticky it says that the MK2 does not fit but there is no mention of the MK1. Thanks!

The SIgma 2X TC will work, and a Tamron SP or Kenko Pro 2x TC will also work. IQ, questionable.

Gasrock: Thanks for the reply. I have both the sigma and the kenko I was thinking about switching to the canon MK1 to use with my 70-200mm 2.8 IS but I also use the 2x with my 180mm macro if he MK1 works with the sigma I can switch to use with the L and still use it with my sigma

2X TCs are rare. Why 2 with a desire to buy another? I have a total of 5 TCs, but only one 2X.

Afaik the mkI like the MkII 2x and 1.4x have a protruding front element that can physically interfer with non compatible lenses. The difference between the
marks is a better optical performance and weather seals, but I don't think the mkI will fit If the mkII does not.
With the canon 180 the 2x is Sort of ok at macro distances and poor at normal distances.

i was thinking of getting rid of the both and picking up the canon but if i cannot use it with my sigma 180mm macro (which from what Lester is saying) then I will keep one of the 2 i have and sell the other one.
