    I am tempted to get this lens for use at airshows as well. I currently use EF70-300L IS USM which is a great lens. I can not use a canon extender as the rear glass element protrudes into the camera body.
    Is the AF tracking good enough for say fast jets ! ?
    I am not worried about weight but cost is always an issue,..ha

    You can use a Kenko extender on your 70-300mmL with no issues. I have one for mine and it works well.

    It will keep up with jets no problem.

    The Kenko DGX 1.4 will work with your 70-300L but it is then very slow to focus. I tried it but gave up after a few attempts.

    Ah, probably not so good on older bodies that don't focus to F8 with a teleconverter.

    Could you point me to that, I would be interested to read it (and so would Kenko I imagine)

    I use the Kenko DGX 1.4 with the 70-300mm L lens on a 6D and although it give a max of f8 I've never had a problem with the auto focus. I use the center spot 90% of the time and found that the focus is no different compared to without the extender. It's a great combination.

    Looking at the quality of photos on this thread, the 150-600c is a cracker, I adore mine so much it never comes off the camera nowadays

    I am 69 and brought one last week. Only played with it so far but looking forward to spending some time in nature reserve hides ( maybe still a bit small on a full frame ) and wildlife parks ( where it will be perfect )

    I just got this lens today and half an hour later took it out to shoot a soccer (football) match. Oh my word! What a delightful lens. I'm glad I bit the bullet and it was on sale to boot. One immediate lesson learned - I really need to crank up the shutter speed.

    Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere on this thread. I was wondering whether or not anyone here uses their 150-600C with the Sigma x1.4TC ? If so, how badly doe this influence the AF speed and sharpness ?

    In short, I am wondering whether I can get away with using this lens plus x1.4TC on a D810 (or maybe a D850 ?) as opposed to shooting without and using a D500.

    FWIW, I owned a D810 a couple of years ago, really liked it, and regularly used it with other long lenses and found it to be a really versatile body giving some great wildlife images. I just do not know how this particular lens plus TC would work on the D810 body, or the D850, which I might go for at a pinch.

    Any user-experience would be very much appreciated.

    Bit of a landscape trek round parts of North Wales at the weekend and so so glad I kept the big sigma in the bag when others just had walkabout and wide angles with them :)

    Just tried my 150-600c on my new to me D700 only to see what sort of quality I will get (pic only to see quality not well composed) and boy am I impressed, VERY impressed, I cant wait to get out at the weekend with this combo and get some stunning shots, the DoF at f14 is just superb as are the focus points, I loved this lens on the D7000 but now its on a FF body..........WOW
