Real newbie here, but lurking for ~6mos. Architect. An F2 plus all the primes has helped me make my living a long time. On Steve's advice, I got my first digital 6 mos. ago--Casio Exlim600--which I dearly love and have glorious 8.5X11 prints of everything from spider-lilys to sky-scrapers. I've got both the wide-angle and tele-converter add-on lenses, plus the macro and roto-polarizer adds.

Ready to move up, because the 200mm equiv. just doesn't do it.

So, here are my two questions:

1. Does anybody have the 8800(max. 350mm equiv.) with the TC-E17ED tele-converter(max. 595mm equiv.)?

2. If I would scan ISO 100 negs from my F2+400mm zoom on a Nikon Coolscan V(4800 X 3200), and then print it onmy Canon i9900?

Which would yield the better 13X19 PQ?

Thanks in Advance,

F2Guy

Hi F2Guy. Here's an example of a hawk I took yesterday with the 1.7 teleconverter. On EXTRA at ISO 50. Above 50 you can notice quite a bit of grainyness. Don't know if you can make a living with zoom and teleconverters. Just won't get the sharpness of a prime lens. You can see a picture I took of the moon with the teleconverter on the 'shoot the moon' thread. Hope this helps.

Hi Old Codger:

Wow! I printed it out on my i9900 and no noise anywhere! But sure, anything over ISO50 is gonna suck. Kids deny that, at their peril. Same w/film. In fact, best images I ever got, anywhere, were from Kodak B&W ASA 32--Orthochrome?...I forget it's name....

Cheers,

F2Guy

PS: The Moonshot was great too! Therefore, I'm gonna go for the whole 8800+tele-converter deal (vs. another big-ol' DSLR set-up, which I am far too old to mess with yet again....
