We have all heard about the new 150-600mm lenses announced by Sigma, but they also announced some new filters and teleconverters, too. I just received word that they are now available for pre-order, so here are the details again.

    Could a person expect one of these teleconverters and the new 150-600 C lens to work on the new Canon 7d II? I seem to recall reading somewhere that the teleconvertors don’t work on crop sensor cameras. Is that true?

      I’ve used both the 1.6, and 2x tele-converter on both my 7D, and 6D with my new Tamron 150-600mm lens with no problem. You may have heard the Canon Tele-converters may give problems since the rear element sticks out from the converter.
      My converter is a 1.6X Kenko, and 2X Tamron. I use both on the 7D which is a cropped sensor body with no problem.

    sigma fills some important gaps in the line-up of the big brands and they do this very well recently with high quality equipment. I wonder what the filters are going to be like…

      I’ve owned a Sigma EX Circular polarizer for many years now, (5+) and I gotta say it’s awesome. It’s got amazing color preservation quality, and is as slim as those fancy slim filters that have no front threads, yet this filter does have them! It’s also much lighter than the fancy, expensive B+W options. (Although B+W might be better for cold environments, as they are allegedly brass while others are aluminum, and aluminum is known to jam / stick more frequently…)

      All in all, I’m very excited about this new WR polarizer! It’s high time to retire my old one, I’ve dropped it on concrete so many times that it’s barely spinnable. In fact it’s a dang miracle the thing hasn’t shattered yet!
