  1. I got my 300 f/4 today. I'm new to all this and learning from everyone here. These are all taken with a d300, 300 f/4, kenko 1.4x, and mono pod. Thanks for looking.

    Nice first series, yep that lens rocks....
     
  4. Nice work. I'm sure you will get a lot of enjoyment from your new combo. Which version of the 300 f4 did you get?
     
  5. You learnt well... very nice images. :) 
     
  6. Nice work! All you need now is some tubes to go with that super nice lens.
     
  7. Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I do hope to get the nikon PN-11 for the lens.
     
  8. Nice start, David!

    You´ll love the lens for sure...

    About the PN-11, I prefer it over Kenko´s because it´s totally problem free. I suggest to try to find it as used as I´m sure there´re lot of them in people´s closets as not that many use them anymore...and because, if you happen to find one as new it´s ridiculously expenssive. I placed a WTB ad and after an hour was a happy owner of the tube for less than 1/3 of it´s listed price...
     
  9. Thanks for the advice on the PN-11. I will certainly go that route.
