Looks sharp enough for me, sharper than my AFS 4/300! BTW blur comes from the weak tripod collar.

Remember those were badly exposed and with 2.0TC ...
With the 1.4 TC it gets crazy!

This picture I took today before starting to test the 2.0TC because I wanted to have a reference point regarding lighting.

I made 2 100% crops : both OFF-Centre ! Sharpess is better in center but @F8 it isn't a big issue anymore. Focus was fast even off centre, not always the case with sigma lenses. I also have the 17-50F2.8 OS for example and focus isn't quit as fast in the corners.

Also I like the bokeh on this thing.
I like a lot about this lens As you can tell.
