Hi My English is not very good, I hope you can understand.

I use 5D Mark iv with canon 70-200 f2.8 is iii usm to photograph birds I found that 200 mm Not enough for shooting birds at all So I think I need to get a super telephoto lens for bird photography, but I had a hard time deciding with these two lens.

I'm thinking of buying a [Sigma 120-300 F2.8 Sports + Sigma Tc-2001 2x] to get a 600mm

But the [Sigma 500mm f4 sport] is another interesting option

Sigma seems to be my only option. Because Canon lens are priced much higher

Sigma 150-600 S is an economical option, but I don't like it design

If I decide from price 120-300 definitely win, but I want to buy these high-priced lenses first time and last time But I think 120-300 will be more flexible to use but in my opinion The lens is designed to be used at 300mm. If I had bought it, I would mostly wear the X2 I thought that if I bought a 500 mm, I would have limitations on photography But it's probably the best demon of sigma telelephoto what do you think of these 2 lenses?

I just want some opinions to make a decision This might just be the beginning of my loss And I think my post is probably the one that people interested in these lenses can find information from my post.

Thank you very much for answering and reading.

Obviously Sigma 500 f4 will be a better choice for birding. 120-300mm with 2x tc is too much compromise on quality. Even 150-600 Sports is a better choice than 120-300.
