Sigma 150-600mm with a 2x Magnifier with the Nikon!

I was already in love with the 150-600mm lens, head over heels, couldn’t get enough – in love with it. Then, the 2x Magnifier that we ordered for the Sigma 150-600mm arrived and took my emotions to an entirely new level.

THESE ARE ALL SHOTS FROM OUR BACKYARD!

Two cons about the magnifier:

  1. When you’re out at 1200mm, it’s hard to find your subject. I think this is implied and probably strikes you as common sense BUT, the constant rotation of zooming in and zooming back out is a little cumbersome to find your target – it works though!
  2. I had trouble focusing on the birds. They are so incredibly fast as it is, but I missed more than a couple shots just trying to get them into focus. Lots of rotating the lens to try and get the picture how I wanted it and then increasing the zoom.

The Eastern bluebird was shot from my backyard! I was so shocked that the lens got it at all, much less captured the colors.

The detail is incredible! You can see the fuzz on his beak! This magnifier is everything and I can’t wait to really get out and use it. Texas living is amazing! I am so incredibly happy with this magnifier. Purchase it here from Amazon. Here’s also the link to the Sigma 15-600mm. (It’s an affiliate link but that does NOT cost you anything.)
