Excellent, Troy, are you using a straight 600 or 300 + 2x ? Have you any experience with the new 300 and 2x combo ? Thanks, john


Straight 600mm. I have not used my 300mm much. :tongue:
400mm 2.8 + 2XTC III AF is pretty sharp. On f4 lenses, MF is better.

Thanks, I have heard and read so many positive reports regarding the 300 2.8 VRII + new 2x combo and so my interest is high :), I have them arriving, all being well, tmro and hoping for more than adequate results :).

Well Troy, all the new kit arrived this morning so I have a weekend ahead of 'playing' and trying it all out :wink::smile:. I know the 300 + converters will never match a straight 500/600 but it will be fun trying. Enjoy your weekend too, cheers, john

for flight shots, focusing will be slower that is for sure. IQ may not be far behind. You will be surprised how sharp 300 2.8 is.
