No samples yet but I already got a pleasant suprise, the HSM focusingworks with my Kenko 1.5X and Promaster 1.7x Teleconverters. In decent light even works at 500mm, as a mater of fact it works better than the SDM on my DA*300mm f/4 with the teleconverters. the 1.7X does not work at all with the 300mm, the 1.5X works poorly with the 300mm. The Sigma 150-500mm focuses almost as fast with the 1.5X as without, just a little slower withthe 1.7X TC.

Well Ed,
that's good to know, AFTER I already shelled out the extra bucks for the Sigma TC!:G
seriously though, that is good to hear. Sounds like we're both going to be busy shooting this weekend! we'll have to get together some time and compare lenses. my 70-200 should be here any second now.

GW:bye:
