Some taken with the HD 1.4 TC wide open.














Some real good shots..are these handheld? have you tired with the AFA 1.7 TC?

You're creating some amazing pictures with this lens my friend. If more people see these I'm afraid the barrage of Sigma extreme telephoto lenses for sale on the marketplace will commence sooner than expected.

Amazing.
That is quite near the IQ of my DA*300/4 (without a TC).

How does it compare to the Sigma 100-300f4? w/ or w/o 1.4x TC

GlassJunkie compared its wide open performance with the FA* 300 f2.8 + 1.4x AW TC, and the zoom might have a slight edge..

(and I thought owning Sigma Ex 300 f2.8 would keep me from lusting over this beast...)

Oops
I bought a gimbal head today, hopefully that would give me a bit better stability and performance out of my 300/f2.8, if not I'll sell it and get the darn 150-450, to hell with it.
