Head over to fredmiranda and check the Canon forum > they have a lot of BIF shooters on that site in general and some of the images I've seen are spectacular.

I don't shoot BIF or big lenses, no experience with Sigma glass or adapters, so I cannot not really help, but I would suggest to give it some more time and experiment with AF settings and tracking options, use mechanical shutter, etc.

Indeed over at FM's site there are probably a hundred or more shots razor sharp and perfection all taken with R5 or R6 bodies. There's no compromise with that RF100-500 even with the 1.4x on it. Not sure how anyone can criticize it.

Name the gear and I've probably owned it and used it.
