Default First try with 1.4X TC and Viv 600mm solid cat

Not ideal conditions as the sun and clouds would not cooperate. The DOF shrinks even more with this combo. Razor thin would be the word for it...not to mention the lower f/stop with the TC attached. I used the Sigma 1.4X APO EX DG TC matched for the Bigma. Works well but I need a lot more practice with it.

Zoom looks fine, Colors need a bit of adjustment maybe.... And why NOT use the bigma?

Because I'm trying to learn to use this one.

Not bad at all. I'm still waiting for the right light to try a 1.5 TC with my 120-600.

Same here as these long focal length high f-stop lens do need the light to work well.

I think it adds to the bokeh, makes it a bit softer. However it also takes away a bit of detail too.

I'd like to chime in with the bokeh here .

And detail is still plenty. I played around with one of the images - just a quick check - and came up with something like that. There is some kind of fuzzy/"unsettled" feeling in some of the image areas, which could be my personal impression of the bokeh... but otherwise it's clean and nice.

Regards,
Th.
