How about a couple sport images with the original TC20E on a old D3? Full frame and 100% crop side-by-side.

Tonyc - Wow. I already had significant lens envy as I have been following this thread, but these shots with a 2X converter none the less are real eye poppers on the 100% crops. What a lens. I am sure, however, the photographers on this thread have as much, or more, to do the great photos as does the lens. Thanks for the post!

I've been enjoying the action at my hummingbird feeder all week and working on technique for fast action . . . chubby and D4 are an incredible pair and do a great job at keeping up with these guys! These were shot in AF-S (single-shot) mode with Auto FP high-speed sync fill flash . . . all within 20 seconds from 1st shot to last in this sequence.

I believe this hummingbird is the mate of the other that I've posted earlier in this thread . . . it's the only other hummingbird to visit our feeder, as the other bird drives all others away. The only problem is that bees have invaded and the hummingbirds seem to be quite wary of them (potentially the extremely aggressive, and ever more prevalent Africanized variety bee).

Chris, move the feeder about five feet from where it is now, it's just enough to throw off the bees, but not the hummers. Love the hummer shots, well done!

Thanks Jim. With 2x TCs having a reputation for less than stellar image quality, this is the first time I have been satisfied with its performance. The 200/2 is that sharp. And you are right, it's all about the photographer's eye than the actual gear.

Seeing the pictures here, I want to get myself a Chubby.

It's one expensive beast though. I doubt my fiance would appreciate it...and she will notice this lens for sure.

Hi all,

I was poisoned from the 200f2 thread (part 1) and I envy all you folks. I hope I will own one someday. Got a 70-200mm vr2 instead for the price factor. (also an amazing lens)

But the start of this recent 200f2 thread (part 2) got me excited all over again.
I chanced upon a good deal on a used 200f2 vr1 (very good deal) and I lost the control and brought it home 3 weeks ago. Unlike the previous lenses, this chubby is too big to be smuggled home. I had to declare to my wife and she was equally as excited when she saw the photos.

Coupled with a D3s, it seems to weigh as much as my newborn girl.

First thoughts.
When I shoot against a strong backlight. The subject seems quite washed out as compared to my 70-200vr2. Otherwise it is fantastic in every way.

I need to find a lens cap for Chubby in my country.

Still learning how to tame this big fella.
