Here's a few handheld shots I took today, wide open (f/4) and ISO 800. The first one with the flags is at 235mm x 1.4 = 330mm, and the others are at 300mm x 1.4 = 420mm. OS was on for the first three images, and off for the sh*t hawk.

The IQ is not quite as good as an EF 300/2.8L IS + 1.4x III, but it's generally quite acceptable. The zoom capability is nice. The first few flag shots I took were at 300mm, then I backed off a bit to get a better composition. YMMV.

I thought that Sigma lenses work well only with Sigma TC's. It looks like it's not the case.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

Thanks for the comparisons Jim. How are you finding the Sigma 120-300 compared to the Canon 70-200 IS II in sharpness and focusing accuracy? The reason I ask is because I too am considering the Sigma and also have the 70-200 IS II which I use for my son's hockey and baseball photos and the thought of having a 300mm f 2.8 included in the zoom is a great sports lens.
Just worried about Sigma's past QC problems...
