Tried out the 70-200VR + 2x Kenko TC..... But OMG these birds where nervous today! Don't know what my neighbors think of me now, chasing around the yard with a monopod and the little lens and form time to time freezing in action to wait for the birds... Well that's what was usable: NIKON D200    ---    360mm    f/8.0    1/200s    ISO 250 NIKON D200    ---    360mm    f/11.0    1/200s    ISO 360 "Silence!" NIKON D200    ---    400mm    f/11.0    1/200s    ISO 400 Intimidating look NIKON D200    ---    400mm    f/11.0    1/200s    ISO 400 Starling checking his smell NIKON D200    ---    400mm    f/11.0    1/200s    ISO 400 Thanks for looking.
