I decided to try my Tamron 1.4x TCwith the 100-400Land DRebel and it seems to work very well. It slowed the focus speed down just a little but its still a lot faster than it was on the 135-400 Sigma.

The first two shots of the Cedar Waxwings in a Mulberry treeare without the TC and the last two of the Mourning Dove and Squirrel are with the TC.

1. Cedar Waxwing - ISO 400, 1/1250, F5.6 at 400mm - Resized, FM and NR

Great shots with the teleconverter, Houston, looks like you've got a workable combination there. You might increase the color saturation just slightly to account for the loss with the converter. However, that is the only significant difference that I can see over your other shots without the extender, and that difference can easilybe eliminated in post processing, so you've got a winner here. :-)

Norm, I'm not sure you saw the Squirrel. I was having a very hard time getting the Dove in here. I almost always resize down to 800 pixels but the dove was still to large of a file. I resized it down to 700 and then down to 650 and then on down to 625 before I could get it in here. So all that resizing probably degraded it a lot. Can you tell me what causes this problem.

When posting using Steve's uploader you have restrictions in size. You should get your own web space and post your photos there, then link them to here. That way you can post as many as you want in one post.

PS - more great photos from you.
