And just to prove that I do shoot BIF on occasion...
Wow, and some BIF that is, with 1.4xTC no less.........
Gary's cormorant shot reminded me of something else of some relevance.
A month or so ago I decided to verify if my superb 400 f/2.8 IS MkII + 2xTC MkIII could "emulate" 800L, or perhaps do even better for BIF photography.
(1) The combo's AF drive speed is lower than bare 800L, although the shorter MFD of the combo offered some benefits. All around, I'd still prefer 800L, if I had to do BIF at 800mm.
(2) The combo's IQ was close but not quite on the 800L level.
Here is a sample image taken with handheld 400 f/2.8 II + 2xTC MkIII.
