Took these this past week. The light was not good. I had the extender on the 300, and tried to see if I could get some handhelds at low shutter. The IS on the 300 is very good. I really didn't think I'd get any results, but a few turned out ok...cheers...Don

Nice job, Don! Colors and exposure are right on. Some of those should be coming in around me any time. That lens combination seems to work very well and I have thought about getting that myself for the IS....plus a tad bit of extra reach. Is the focus pretty fast with the extender on?

Thanks VP. Yes, this combo seems very good. The IS and the 1.4ex work together very well. Focus is a tad slower in bad light, but then it is even slower without the 1.4 in lousy light. I notice little difference in good light. Nice alternative to the 400/5.6 as you now have IS. I hear the 100-400 is very good too, but have never tried one. Some like it, some don't. I really don't like using tripods or monopods preferring to handheld, so IS is important in this light starved climate. I'm always moving and don't want to haul around any more stuff than the camera and the lens attached....cheers.....Don

Thanks Hung. Your comments are very appreciated. If it wasn't for your insights, I probably wouldn't have changed systems..cheers...Don

Nice work, Don. That first one is very sharp for handheld.
