Default teleconverters 5700

I am considering buying a 5700 for bird photography. However I am looking for teleconverters with a 4 or 5 times at least convertion. Does anyone have any experience in this area? Please I like to hear from you and if possible receive some sample shots .

Looking forward hearing some feedback in Belgium

thanks

There is no good 4X and 5X teleconverters for the 5700. The TC-E15ED is 1.5X and the popular Olympus TCON-17 is 1.7X. Mounting them together can only get you 2.55X with some vignetting. There are monoscope type converters (e.g., CrystalVue 8X) that can be used on the 5700. The problem is that vignetting is VERY serious and difficult to focus. Or, you might want to buy more expensive monoscope for birding. In this case, you will also need a more expensive adapter/eyepiece (e.g., http://www.williamoptics.com/ or http://www.scopetronix.com/ ) You may also find quality high power scopes for birding.
