Those are really excellent Ron. It that the Nikon 200-400 VR lens? The clarity is outstanding. Nice work. Steve

Thanks folks for taking the time to comment!!

Steve, the lens is the Nikon 200-400mm VR af-s. I was using the Nikon 300 f4 and really liked that lens but the ability to zoom down to 5 feet with a sharp lens is great. It works well with the 1.4x TC also. If the AF is what they claim on the D300 it should make a nice combination.

Have not used the 200-400 before. Would like to know its maneuverability in respect of zooming and rotating round the lens collar?

Full agree with you about the use of the 1.4 on the 300mm. The pro 1.5 by Kenko is also excellent.

Last but not the least, a great series. Keep up with the good work.
