Sorry. Been looking at the 300mm f2.8 lenses. A bit out of my league but I do have a
Sigma 70-200mmD 2.8 APO DG HSM. This is a nice lens and would get me on the road
Till my lottery numbers come in. Thanks for taking time to reply.
Bobby.

Hi When you get your lotto win the 300 prime will work no problem with a t/c.
The sigma 70 200 will work all right on a X2 tele convertor, my only concern would be it will make your images softer.

To get better image quality you would be better getting a 1.4 t/c

This link shows the sigma t/c friendly lenses http://www.sigmaphoto.com/teleconverter-compatibility. Hoipe this helps ... Graham
