Bighorn sheep - Both of the 2X TC's would autofocus and indicate locked focus but the resulting images were terribly out of focus.

My verdict - Sigma 500/4.5 + any 2X teleconverter is NOT recommended by me.

Interesting as the original Bigma will Auto-focus pretty well with the Sigma matched 2x converter.

Only real issue is the drop in contrast but that can be fixed in PP.

Theres obviously more to this than F-stop alone.

I see the same contrast drop in your 300 + 2x shots

Hand-held AF 500mm + 2x

AF 500m 1.4x

Cheers.
