Hello
I own a Nikon 60mm 2.8D lense and I am thinking of buying the new sigam 105mm 2.8 ( with the digital adaption) or the original nikon 105mm D. Is the nikon really worth the extra money?
Also I am looking for a 1.4 or 2.0 teleconverter wich brand could you recommand and what typ( please the correct typenumber) could I use the teleconverters for both the Sigma 105mm (if I would buy the lens) and the nikon 60mm or do they just fit for the same brand ( say nikon)?

Rob,
I've tested both : the Nikon 105mm Autofocus is definitely quicker as the Sigma's one...
I'm using the Kenko MC7 2x converter with the 60mm (it fit in the 105 port) and it works fine ! Haven't tested yet with the 105 but a friend does and it's great ! With the MC7 you still use AF mode... which is not the case with Nikon teleconverter... !
