    Sigma 150-600mm contemporary

    I just purchased a x1.4TC from MPB for use with my D810/Sigma 150-600C combination. I will give it a proper test at the weekend and report here how well, or otherwise, it works.

    Couple from earlier. The dunnocks are quite common but elusive. The other, I think, is a sparrowhawk. This is the first time I have seen one around here in 20 years so lucky to get a picture at all ! Dunnock2 by gazzer48, on Flickr SH1 by gazzer48, on Flickr

    Had a walk around Cossington Meadow near Leicester earlier with the boy. The light was patchy but cannot complain. I did not get to photograph everything but we saw plenty of birds including: goldfinch, shovellers, teal, goldcrest, kestrel, cormorant, heron and a few others plus a fox. A few...

    Dunnock Close up.............

    Hi Mark I much prefer the unsharpened image too. Plenty of detail there. A great capture and shows that the Oly-Leica combination works really well when combined with your skills.
