Took these this morning. I decided to use the TC17eII with the 300VR and the results were better then I thought they would be.

Ray,
the 1.7tc never ever left the back of my 300 2.8vr lens, and I always shot it wide open, its an amazing piece of glass with and without tc's. Your pics are beautiful! Congrats.

Well done Ray, my compliments on these outstanding shots!

Randy, Tim O uses this combo as his Prime long range flight/birding combo with similar stellar results. I have also shot with his combo, it is sharp, scary so,

here are some of his:

Thanks Kevin!

I think it was some of you images that forced me to purchase the 1.7:wink:


excellent shot sir., and sharp like crazy., very well done.
Appreciate it Ray!

Who you calling sir we're the same age:smile:


Boy you Nailed the Exposure and Focus on this Set, Just Outstanding Ray!!!!
Thanks Gary,

Even a blind dog finds a bone now and then:wink:
I tried something different and thats usually my problem. I used A2 for WB instead of UNIWB and then fine tuned it in NX2. I really need to be more consistant but type A gets in the way.

u may have got me to try the 1.7
these are amazing
Blame it on Kevin P. Its all his fault:smile:

Cheers,

Ray

is this normal IQ for the 300vr + 1.7 ?
frankly i'm startled....can you post a link to a full version jpg please ?
thx !
No problem Randy, here is a full rez jpg. Sharpening is only set at 2. I do my main sharpening in Pshop as the last step. The image was shot in STD Pic control and changed in Processing to D2x Mode III with sharpening = 2, contrast = 0, Brightness = -1, Saturation = 2, Hue = 0.

My first D300 originally needed an af fine tune of +7 or so to be as sharp as my replacement D300. I do not have any AF fine Tuning on this camera.
