    Very nice set Tim. That 300 f4 can certainly produce some very nice images. :smile:

    Beautiful captures, I like them all - Thanks
     
  5. Very nice shots, Tim!!! The birds must like you - they allow you to get pretty close.

    Tim, how does the TC-20E II work with the AF-S on that lens? Does it hunt a lot when seeking focus?
     
  6. nice Tim, very nice.

  9. Very nice images, clarity and composure are very good.
     
  10. Very beautiful shots, love the one of the two Sanderlings. Between you and Mike Mac's awesome shorebird shots, I am thinking I have to get out to the seacoast soon!
     
  11. Thanks Dennis

    The TC-20E II actually works quite well with the 300 f4 afs. Although, it does hunt a lot in low light. With AF use, it really requires decent light to work well. It doesn't have to be sunlight; just a normal well lit day. However, even in good light it is slower to AF than without it. I tend to manual focus on the subject really quickly and then fine tune with the AF. Other than that, I think it remains fairly sharp with the 300 f4.

    Cheers
