shot these with the tammy300+ 200f 2x @ f8 and a gymbaled tripod. combo works well but it awful hard getting something in motion. angle of view is about the size of my thumbnail at arms length.

Roy

incredible shots and not only for 600mm at 300mm they would be just as great.

Never thought much about getting a 2x teleconverter but these are changing my view very fast.

Thanks

Ronny

ronnie,

thanks for responding.. this 2x was designed for use for tamron's SP lenses. as far as i know it will only work with their adaptall2 lenses.. i've got their lower priced mc4 2x but have not compared the two yet..

Old glass really holding up as you have proved. But with 2x!! That means it can stand that much of degradation . Amazing.

Very nice bird shots Roy. I need to keep my eyes open for the better 2x adaptall, the lower end model does not turn in results like that on my lens.
