Nice. AF works also with the 1.4 Sigma TC in?

Sure. It's just screw drive AF and the effective aperture is f/5.6, so no problem for the camera.

Then SIGMA 100-300 f/4 and his TC are a terrific combo!

From the Adelaide University flute symposium, Michael Cox - Principal flute of the BBC orchestra:

Pentax K5IIs - Sigma 100-300mm f/4 APO EX DG @ 220mm 1/60th f/5.6 ISO 3200

With steady hands, the Sigma 100-300mm f/4 truly excels at concert photography.

I just picked up a really nice Sig 100-300 F4 from a forum member (thanks Sergy!) Literally have had less than 24 hours so haven't played too much yet, but based on what I have shot I really like this lens. Its heavy but barely hand holdable..Thats how these shots were done. It was a pretty cloudy and windy day at the shore and I really should have used a tripod, but if it shoots this good in adverse conditions, I'm going to love it in better ones.

K3 works well with this lens though I did end up bumping up the AF +4


pp in darktable with slight sharpening, slight saturation increase, some are cropped. minimal processing for most.

Fantastic lens.

Too bad Sigma threw the towel in terms of supporting K-mount. However, this particular lens had been discontinued a long time ago anyhow.
