Saw a few guys with 800mm Lens' however the 70-200 & 1.7x Teleconverter def held it's own, though someday the super fixed tele's would be nice

No Grizzly Pics, I saw two but even an 800mm lens wouldn't be close enough to get a picture....... :(

preludejo,

Nice series of photos. Shoot what you have and make the best of it. It looks like you did just that.

Are these all with the TC-17e? I must say wow, amazing shots! #6 is my favorite in the whole set.

Just got a TC-17 for my VRII as well (still waiting for it) Your photos are making me excited :biggrin:

Please post more!

#6 is great! Great composition, and the movement in the rain really makes it stand out!

Not bad for being used with a 1.7 TC. I always wondered how that would work. I have a 1.4 TC and it worked great on my first generation 70~200 2.8 VR lens.

On the series 1. 70-200 the tc1.7 is a step in the wrong direction. I think you really need to consider prime fast lenses to make proper use of the 1.7.

In sayin this - these shots taken with the series 2 are outstanding - so maybe you have three optimum products , cam body, 1.7tc and lens? The proof of the pudding is in the eating as they say an really from what I can see these are superbe results.
