I had to read this thread quick to figure out if I missed out on a new Nikkor!

Strange... my version is a 98-280mm when it isn't busy being a 70-200. Great testimony there to the lens' ability to function with the 1.7 and great great colors for sure TM. Thanks fer sharin'!


I do that a lot It does real well in good light, DJ. Thanks a bunch!

Very beautiful colours. I'm jealous. We have rain most of the time now on this side of the ocean.

Thank you, Guy. We're indeed fortunate, only having to deal with WIND once in awhile.
We usually get our months worth of rain in an hour or two...so I can't complain.

Good ones Will. Makes me want to live near you. We have had a good summer here in the UK but we just have too many of them grey old days. Hope you are keeping well.

Mark


Many thanks, Mark...I'm doing pretty well (except for the "old" age part)

Lovely shots, Will. I am certainly envious of the countryside that you have ready access to. But, we all can't live in lovely places. Just so you know, that isn't meant to detract from the work that you did framing and getting the shots.

Kerry


I'm a thankin' ya, Kerry. This land surrounds my place and I'm lucky enough to access it by
simply walking out my back gate. Framing the horses IS tricky, they're very social and often
get too close...or one will blind side ya - nose to the lens just when you're takin' the shot.

Will, I don't know how you do it, but it seems like all of the shots you post are dialed in How was the AF with this combo?


Thanks!!
It's pretty easy, Rodney. AF in good light w/decent contrast is excellent. I'll use the TC-20E III as well
for BIF thru around 50 yds or so. Makes for a nice light 400mm especially handy when the migratory's
are arriving for the Fall/Winter. Very skittish for the 1st few weeks back. Before shootin' horses I got this...

70-200 f2.8 VR II w/TC-20E III (it's best > ~380mm and stopped down one)

Nice shots Will,

Ourab to answer your question I found the AF worked great with this combo, I used to use it all the time. It's pretty sharp too, although better at closer distances - but I was using the VR1 so the II is better.


Appreciate it, Willy. Yup, the VR II takes ALL the TC's in stride.

No, Willy...I'm gonna pass for now. Down to just one venue (w/modest sales) where this
would be handy. Most covered by the 70-200 and if I need close to 300 the 200 f2/TC14
is pretty amazing (and paid for)

Thanks a lot, Charles...mine too. I forgot to put this one up, as a close 2nd.
Turning my attention to the arriving Sandhills, now.
