  1. My favorite so far with my 300F4 + TC1.4....

    Caught this house finch in a relaxed pose when the light was just right (14 feet away, 250/sec at F8, ISO 360).

    I looked up the total DOF at F8 at 14 feet = approx. 1 inch! Glad I focused on his eye!


    I luv this lens + TC... comments please...

    Very nice Paul, the detail in the feathers are great. It was so nice of this guy to come close and pose for you.

    Excellent shot Phil. I have that same combo. BTW, my calculations show the DOF for this combo to be 1.47" (still super shallow). My calculator gave the same results as yours until about a month ago when I read an interesting article that explained that the DOF is dependent on the imaging circle, which is 1.5 times smaller with Nikon's crop factor. :smile:
  6. Well this is one great shot. I am told and have seen how very good this lens is. If I did not already own the 70-200 vr I would jump on getting it. It is a little hard to justify the cost when I can put a tc on the 70-200 and I have a 500 but who knows.
  7. thanks all for your kind remarks!
