effectively gives me a 400 f8. i shot some tests and this is the best. from results of the others it seems i'll definately need to use a mono. it is however a Very light weight option for a 400mm. shot at f4/f8 wide open.

Roy,

I would use the lens with a 1.4 TC instead of a 2x and you will have a really nice light lens that reaches out and is sharp even though it is a 280 instead of a 400.

Hi Roy,



I agree the 2X is a little to much. Stick with a 1.4 or 1.7 Nice shot though.

i don't have a 1.4x. can't get one now anyway. plus i have a fairly decent 300mm.

i thought the pic was fine for my old shaking hands a 1/40sec..
