    DrJohn got a reaction from BobB in Sigma 150-600 mm lens with teleconverter and MC-11 for Sony   
    I used the Sigma 150-600 mm lens with MC-11 adapter for Sony to image the moon. The image came out ok. But, there was significant cropping. I wanted more focal length. Sigma said I couldn't use the 1.4x or 2.0x teleconverter with this lens and the MC-11 adapter. They gave me the wrong info. You can use the teleconverters. However you will lose the autofocus. If you're imaging the moon, you will use manual focus anyway. I just came across this youtube video using the 150-600 mm with the 2x teleconverter on a Sony A7RII.   John     John

    DrJohn got a reaction from Thad E Ginathom in Sony 18-200 mm LE Lens for the Beach?   
    I did this photo with the 70-350 G lens. I don't think the 18-200 will be as good.

    It looks like I will need to decide between Seagulls or beach. I think Seagulls wins.

    Hi from  South Africa.
    I am a wildlife and surfing photographer, based in the coastal town of Ballito. (Upper east coast of South Africa).
    My wife and I were both formerly Canon shooters for 19 years, but we switched to Sony equipment in 2017.  
    My wife specialises in video ( Sony HXR-NX 80), and up to now I have specialised in stills, but that is now changing with the delivery of my SonyA7Siii today! Woopwoopwoop!.😝
    In 2017 the Sony A9i just blew me away with it's focus acquisition/tracking, and it's general performance, including its lightness, and comparative cost against my old Canon kit (1DX MKii / 5D MKiv / 7D MKii, and  200mm-400mm f4, and other white lenses)  It was Sony vs Canon , and the performance of the Sony A9i / Sony 70mm-200mm f2.8 GM +2xTC  just blew me away.  I confirmed totally, that it was a major inflection point in the world of modern photography.😲
    The big test came on the Zambezi River (Namibian side), documenting the 2017 breeding season of the erratic-flying  Carmine Bee-eaters. On our return to SA, I immediately sent all my Canon equipment to our  main photographic dealer, with whom we have dealt for many years, and I replaced all my Canon gear with a second A9i body, 100mm-400mm GM , 24mm-70mm f2.8 GM,... But since those days, I have grown incrementally with all the Full Frame Alpha bodies to my present A9ii, A7Riv and, as from today, the A7Siii.
    I have just traded in my magnificent Sony 400mm f2.8 GM .  *I have never been a great fan of long primes, and prefer the versatility of decent long zooms as they provide me with far more versatility for my kind of work, which is in the wilderness areas of sub-Saharan Africa, where we don't know what to expect around the next bush. 😉
    My "go-to" rigs are 100mm-400mm GM +1.4xTC (Always), 200mm-600mm G, on a  Gimpro Gear - double Pano Head  (One for stills, and one for video) , on a Monopod,  and next to me, for wider shots, either the16mm-35mm f2.8 GM / 24mm-70mm f2.8 GM / 70mm-200mm f2.8 GM.  
    This is my first post on this forum

    This was actually more of an experiment. It is very rare to see clear skies in my area. I grabbed the closest camera and shot these photos handheld. I didn't have time to setup a tripod, etc. I found it interesting to see the same moon in daytime and nighttime.
