it's def something cause even the 1.4 sucks on my 70-200 and rocks on my 300/4 & 300/2.8
so beware before you buy it
Yours and Charlies post has got me wondering...why is it some 70-200's out there do not like TC??? I am assuming your 70-200 is tack sharp alone right?
If we only lived closer we could get together and try different combos to find out why...
Interesting. I wonder if the 70-200 + TC combo focus can be fine tuned on the D3/D300 bodies, and if so, would it be recognized as a different lens to the 70-200 by itself.
Has anyone ever used the 70-200 VR lens w/ the TC17 II E - were there any performance issues?
OK after looking up that image of mine of the egret with the green face, it may have been shot with the 200-400. (It has been a long time since I took that shot! Sorry about that, I certainly did not mean to confuse any one!!!)
Here is the URL for it if you want to see it anyhow.
With that said, here is a shot I KNOW is with the 70-200 and the TC17EII and shot at f5.6! :biggrin:
And these 2 shots will show some contrast:
Feel free to give them a little PP and you will see they really will look good.
ALSO I only shoot JPEG so these are truly out of the camera, a D200 at the time. I leave EXIF in tact on all my shots.
These files are real large so I will not keep them up a long time...
How do they compare to yours? Especially the plane and the heli?
they look great...there is no denying the IQ in them
(maybe you hacked the exif...just kidding of course)
i can't imagine the 1.7 works better than the 1.4 so it's gotta be my 70-200 or my TC, both of which have been back to nikon (last year) and checked out ok
