FWIW...

I recently picked up the Sigma 150 to 600 Sport lens. I had a Canon 1.4x TC and a couple of older Kenko 1.4x TCs. To my pleasant surprise, the Kenko 1.4x Teleplus Pro 300 DG worked across the board in all modes on my 7D Mk II and 5D Mk III with excellent IQ.. I had little to no luck with the Canon 1.4x III or Kenko 1.4 MC.. Happy that the Pro 300 DG worked so well. I don't know if this will hold true for Nikon.. May be worth a try..

That's rare. I have this Kenko and also TC1401. Both TC works well with 70-200f2.8 zooms and primes but....not on Sport Sigma.

Mark,

Not sure I'm following? I was debating the need for yet another 1.4x converter, especially one with a limited "audience" (at least according to Sigma) like the TC1401 and so thought I'd try what I had.  The Canon 1.4 TC III wouldn't even make a connection and the other Kenko I had was sketchy.  The Pro 300 DG worked perfectly with the Sigma 150/600 Sports lens.  I know there is also a Kenko Pro 300 DGX and have no idea if that would work.  Bottom line since that Kenko works with all my Canon lens' and (Sigma 35 and 50 1.4 Art) and stacks with my Canon 1.4 TC III I guess I'm set.
Are you saying that your Kenko Pro 300 DG won't work with the 150/600 Sports??  What body?
