Hey Dawg;

I know you're going to have a good time playing with the TCON. I have the same camera and lens and I use the combination a lot. However, I find that there are some disadvantages to the lens, (purple fringing, possibility of motion bluretc.) so I force myself to answer the question "do I need to use this lens for this shot?"

Another hint is to use the lens onlyin the extreme zoom range. Before you see actual vignetting, there will be softening in the corners andlesslight hitting your sensor.

I enjoy your posts. You bring a lot of personality to the forums.

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

Your right Tom. And your right. And your right. Purple fringeing and vignetting do occur. And I probably will still use this lens on the long shots at wildlife targets, because they make it easier for me to actually get some of those shots. I'm not as stealthy as I used to be or as patient as I should be either, so I'll have to use it. your post is well taken and insightful and helpful as always. I only hope that these will be a help for everyone to see what the lens is capable of, Plus it gives my ego a chance to Bragg a little as I didn't think I'd be getting this lens for a long time.
All shots were hand held full Auto.

Your friend Dawg

Dawg ...congrats on getting your lens and thanks for the pictures,they are helpful in showing the difference with the lens and various zooms. The last shot I'm assuming is with no zoom and seeing the inside of the lens.Even though thats not supposed to be good I kinda like it...its a different effect and could be nice once in awhile. Wag, I'm jealous too!

Dan
