Default Add-on Telephoto lens for 7Hi

I'm ready to jump into digital and think I need a 7Hi but am bothered by the 200mm limitation. I do some sports photography and frequently use 300 - 400mm. I like the Minolta's low shutter lag, fast write times, burst capability, and focus/zoom rings, all of which make it a better prospect for action photography than the Nikon 5700; But 200mm vs. 280mm plus the nikon convertors has me bothered. None of the aftermarket teleconvertors seem to work well. Any ideas?

Have you checked out this site?


You can crop a 200mm 7hi shot to 400mm coverage and still end up with more resolution than a 2 Megapixel camera.

Otherwise, maybe you need to consider spending the big bucks for a pro digiital camera body that takes interchangeable lens.

That Raynox x1.8 looks pretty useful, not so much for the magnification that I don't need, but for the decrease in DOF in the image... The fisheye looks like a useful gadget as well!
