Will the Sigma 150-600 sports not be good enough for once a year Africa trips for the kind of photos on website?

Now I am nervous and feel like stopping the sale. :(

You may find this encouraging:

I do not understand the charts so much but I am relieved by most of what I read. Thx… :)

Two things:
1. I never dispute the quality of the lens. God forbid! But I use it once a year and can't justify it.
2. The 1.4x is a pain to use. One has to wait for the lens to 'cool down' before engaging it or it over exposes. Many times shots are lost or over exposed because of this. I think the ease of having the entire zoom range available without engaging the extender (150-600) would be easier.

I am sure you will love the lens combo with the 7D.

I appreciate your comment much. Am concerned too at times. :)

I am very curious as to how that can be. As far as I understand, the metering is controlled by the camera, and switching from 1x to 1.4x provides an immediate, real-time input to the camera's sensor to allow it to meter for the next shot. Considering the fact that cameras can adjust metering within fractions of seconds, being unable to expose correctly due to a rapid change in magnification seems quite unlikely.

But it happened to me so so many times. Please see the lion photos I have posted in this thread. Am baffled too.

My lens will be at Adorama used department soon. Any new reviews of the Sigma? I need to replace the Canon.
Btw I still get up in the middle of the night sweating that I made a mistake.

Lovely Keith. But I was thinking we should limit this thread to 'others'.

Am starting a new thread which can be lots of fun.
Post photos of people taking selfie. Post your own photos, not those found on internet.
I start with one I took in Thailand recently.

I read the title of this thread and suspected it had something to do with the DF. And yes, it was. hahaha
