300/4 AFS vs. 70-200VR + TC1.4 Compared?

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by The Clam, Jun 21, 2007.

  1. Has anyone made this comparison? I am primarily interested in IQ and sharpness, but would also like to know about focusing speed. Comparison shots would be great. Thanks.

    PS
    200 X 1,4 = 280 NOT 300

    I did a comparisone once bwtween 70-200 VR w/ a 1.7 Tele against the
    300 f4 on a tripod and the shots were identical IQ and sharpness at 200%.
     
  4. My 70-200 VR is the best lens I have and I can easily tell if the 1.4 TC is on. I'm planning to add the 300 f4 as soon as they add VR.

    My 300/4 is definitely sharper than 70-200+TC17.
