checking the 70-200 on a bird shot
Posted By: Jimbo, 10-06-2008, 10:08 AM

This was taken hand held at 200mm with my new Sigma 70-200 2.8, shot at 100 ISO & 4.5 and 1/640 sec. It has been fully cropped. I should have hooked up the 2X teleconverter to see how that worked with the lens. Next time. Little pre-post work in Elements.... Cheers JIMBO

I'm sorry to say but the focus looks just a teensy bit off.

Try it with the teleconverter!

Very Nice,

I got my hands on a Kenko 1.5x but have been working every days (12 hours shift) for the past week. Can wait for a good day to test the system out. The HSM does work but the system still reports down to F2.8 on the camera. I hope Sigma comes out soon with their new 1.4x teleconverter as they have just done with the Sony version.

I agree.. wish I had my tri-pod with me. the bird was a ways away and at 200mm, I needed better support... Should have manually focus too... JIM
