Hi,

Hi Deadshot,
Thanks for looking and taking the time to comment....it is much appreciated.

I hope that these serve as fairly good examples of the kind of image quality you can get using this combination of camera body, lens and teleconverter.
I'm just the guy holding the equipment.

Zig

Hello Zig,
Just as a matter of interest did you use a tripod for these..??

Actually,
All of these were done with the aid of a monopod. The area where I took these is a saltwater lagoon. Quite shallow, but with a soft bottom, making a tripod a bit difficult to use.
FWIW, I use a Velbon Neo7 carbon fibre monopod. It is light enough to use all day. Yet, it's sturdy enough to hold the D7000 + the lens + telecom securely.

Interesting, I tend to use a Gorillapod Zoom which is great provided there is something to anchor it onto, tree/post/ rock/fence..A monopod/hiking stick might be good or a Monopod that folds down really short.I use the G/pod mainly for getting into the picture myself as I used to have loads of photo's of my wife on her own on holiday etc.
