    Default Sigma EX APO 70-200 f2.8 with Kenko Pro 2X, work well?

    After battling with myself whether to get the 10D or not, I've narrowly convinced myself to stick to the D30. In a bid to divert my attention (hehe), I'm thinking of replacing my 80-200 f2.8. I'm using an old Tokina ATX 80-200 f2.8, and the optics are very good for the price, until I paired it with the Kenko Pro 2X TC. Results from Zoo and JBP shots are disappointing, contrast is bad and image is soft, CA is very prominent.

    Now I'm thinking of getting the Sigma EX APO 70-200 f2.8, as a good mid-range telezoom and also to be used with the TC for long zoom. Has anyone tried this combi before? Care to comment on the results and compatibility? Thanks!

    P.s. please do not suggest getting the L stuffs, I don't need pin sharpness, and if I have that kind of money I'd rather get a Sigma and a 10D. =)
