    Nice sample - but the usage of the plural ('shots') leaves us wanting more :-p

    Yes, we need to see more! I have been trying to decide between the 200-400 or the 200 f2 with a T/C.

    i will post more tonite after football - my first impression of the 200-400 is not favorable compared to my 300 2.8 - i didn't expect it to be as good - but so far i don't justify the 5k price for the ability to zoom and the decreased quality.

    that is why i rented it - and so far i am glad i did

  6. Of cause it is difficult to say certainly, but the DOF looks very tight at the front of the subject.

  7. I've talked to a few pros who use this lens when combined with the D3, or D2X, and they love it! Especially with the D3 they feel it's the best lens around, sharp, fast, and light too, when compared to just the 400mm AF-S II.

    another test shot from rainy friday night - still not happy with 200-400 but it sure was nice to get in a spot and stay there for a while!

    what is the best size a x b to post?
     
  11. Try to post images that are 800 pixels on the long side for better viewing.

    cbarnes, I'm with Steve! What don't you like about it?
     
  15. I used to shoot the 300VR and the 200-400. I only went to the 400AFSII for speed reasons, but I found the 200-400 compared very favorably in terms of image quality versus the 300VR... I first tried it in a rental as well.
