    Took these pics around the house with my new 300 f/4,also picked up the 1.4 E11 t/c.Think I am going to like this little rig pics are pretty much straight out of the D200.


    This is a sharp little lens going to try the 1.7 on this nice lens later.I am now a member of the 300 f/4 fan club.:biggrin::biggrin:

    nice pictures, very sharp but they seem a bit underexposed to me, something you could correct very easily with the tool of your choice ...
  3. Very nice Tim.... you are going to have a BUNCH of fun with that rig.

    I have the lens and use it with a 20D body, May I recommend you look at a Canon 1.4 TC to go with it. It will get you to 420/5.6 with little or no IQ loss. I promise you it will be the best ~$250 you ever spent. Sorry I didn't read your first post you got it already, Smart move.

    I am so glad that you were able to pick up this combo. One of the best set-ups for the $$ that you can get from Nikon. You are going to have so much fun. :smile:

  14. Nice photos Tim. Tell me did you shoot them in RAW or are they JPG out of the camera. Very sharp for right out of the camera if taken in RAW. You got a good one.
