If you are interested in a crash-course in pro-caliber bird and wildlife photography, you can’t go wrong with this great presentation from Sigma Pro Roman Kurywczak from B&H’s Optic 2016.
I run multiple bird photography workshops to Florida every year and this year I decided to use only one lens; the Sigma 150-600mm Contemporary.

In part 1 of the relevance of teleconverters, I discussed the using the new Sigma TC-1401 1.4x teleconverter out in Bosque Del Apache NWR with the new Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Sports. In this post, I will cover using the new Sigma TC-2001 2x Teleconverter. All images were photographed hand held.
I finally got a chance to get my hands on the Sigma 150-600mm f/5 – 6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary while I was down in Ft. Myers for the Florida Camera Club Councils annual conference. I had a ½ day free before and after the conference and I was eager to get out and put the lens through its paces and compare its performance against the Sigma 150-600mm f/5 – 6.3 DG OS HSM | Sport version.
I had the opportunity to return to Bosque del Apache NWR a few weeks ago to lead a workshop that was sponsored by Sigma Photo, the Friends of Bosque, and Hunt’s Photo and Video. This was going to be an intensive hands-on flight photography workshop and I was bringing with me the new Sigma 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sport as well as the Sigma 120-300mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Sport. Why those lenses and not my beloved Sigmonster? Don’t worry, I don’t leave home without that lens but I was especially excited about testing the two shorter telephoto lenses with the brand new Sigma 1.4 and 2x teleconverters (TC).
