  1. I was all set to attend my son Mark's battle reenactment....and then another son's wife reminded me about Elizabeth's ("Littlebit") fifth birthday party at the same time tomorrow. Ah well.

    I will try my TC2.0EII with it and see if it's as as bad as some folks say the combination is. I got the 300 from J. Keith off our for sale forum and it was in pristine condition. It looks as if it was never used. Iim happy happy happy!


    Rich :D :D :D :D :D :D
  2. Hey congratulations Rich, this will be a great addition to your stable of lenses.

    The 300 f4 is a great lens (I think one of the best buys that you can get from Nikon). I don't think that you will like it as much with the 2.0 TC. I sometimes shoot with the 2.0 on my 300 f2.8, and it is OK, but with the f4, you are going to be at f6.3 wide open.

    It is also a little soft. Now if you really want a good combo (with a TC), try the 1.4. Harris and others have had outstanding results with this combo. Of course, the 300 f4 is also excellent with no TC.

    Good luck with your new lens. I think that you will absolutely love it.... :wink:

    How is this lens with the 1.7? I would think that is a good compromise.

    I have all that tax return money just sitting in my
    account and I have been eyeing that 300mm. But
    I think the wife would kill me if a started spending money on camera stuff before our move. :(

    Can't wait to see the pictures you get with that lens.
