    I got to test out the TC-20E on the 200/2 Saturday at Busch Gardens. The combo seems a bit softer than my 400/3.5 but I pretty much expected that.

    _DSC1747.
    NIKON D2H
    Focal length: 400.0mm (35mm equivalent: 600mm)
    Exposure time: 0.0080 s (1/125)
    Aperture: f/5.6
    ISO equiv.: 200
    Whitebalance: Manual
    Metering Mode: center weight


    _DSC1657.
    NIKON D2H
    Focal length: 400.0mm (35mm equivalent: 600mm)
    Exposure time: 0.0031 s (1/320)
    Aperture: f/5.6
    ISO equiv.: 200
    Whitebalance: Manual
    Metering Mode: center weight


    _DSC1634.
    NIKON D2H
    Focal length: 400.0mm (35mm equivalent: 600mm)
    Exposure time: 0.0010 s (1/1000)
    Aperture: f/5.6
    ISO equiv.: 200
    Whitebalance: Manual
    Metering Mode: center weight
     
  2. No way I would argue with any of these cats. Nice images.
     
  3. Very nice shots. Looks like keepers to me. The 400mm f/3.5 is hard to beat. I sold mine years ago and often wish I had it back. Hopefully, Nikon will re-introduce it with AF.

    Thanks guys,

    I'm still struggling with the mount on the 200mm for wildlife. I think that if they had made the focus ring around three-quarters it's current width and placed a good beefy mount behind it the lens would be a rock.

    Oh well, I bought it to handhold in less than ideal light for sports and it fits the bill perfectly for that so I'll stop complaining.:smile:

    I can understand that you desire perfection, but these images a very, very nice. You used the ambient light very well, highlights look great, colors perfect and each image shot at the perfect time. I enjoyed each and every one. Great shooting and thanks for sharing.

    Excellent shots, as usual Mike. I too have found that the 2.0 is a little on the soft side, although these shots are more than acceptable. In my case, I occasionally use the 2.0 to get the most possible length out of my 300 2.8. You can bet though, that if I had a 600, that I would go that way. :rolleyes:

  10. Hi Mike,

    Nice work indeed. WOW!

    That first cat looks really mad about something. I wouldn't want to be anywhere near those teeth. :smile:

    These are very nice

    I think you should be very happy with the results you are getting with your combo.
     
  12. Nice series! Looks like them mean business...

    Wow!!

    Those shots are amazing!! But somebody needs to use some Pearl Drops on those teeth!!
     
  18. Mike,

    There is nothing unsharp about these set of teeths! I dare anyone who thinks otherwise to check them. :tongue:

    Seriously, these are some fine pictures and very well composed too: I like them. :biggrin:
     
  19. Very nice images and not bad at with the 2.0 which is no where near as sharp as the 1.4.
