It's probably not a lens many have at the moment, but I feel it should have it's own thread like so many other lens have.

Here are a few of mine bare and with TC's.

D810 + 400 f2.8E + 1.4x TCIII @ 1/640, f5.6, ISO640

/">

D810 + 400 f2.8E FL VR + 2x TCIII, 1/1600, f8, ISO635



D810 + 400 f2.8E FL VR + 2x TCIII, 1/1600, f8, ISO224



D810 + 400 f2.8E FL VR + 1.7x TCII, 1/800, f5.6, ISO64



D810 + 400 f2.8E FL VR + 2x TCIII, 1/1600, f8, ISO635



D810 + 400 f2.8E FL VR, 1/400, f4, ISO449



D810 + 400 f2.8E FL VR + 2x TCIII, 1/400, f8, ISO250



100% crop of above photo



D810 + 400 f2.8E FL VR, 1/15, f4, ISO1600 completely handheld at 1/15sec! That's over 4.5 stops of handholdability!



D810 + 400 f2.8E FL VR + 2x TCIII, 1/800, f8, ISO112



100% crop of above

Thank you for your kind comments!

Focus speed is still very good with the 2x TCIII attached. It is slower than without the TC but still very good.

Yes, I did sharpen the 400 + 2x images.

Thank you very much for your very generous and kind comments, Rick. To be honest, the camera and lenses really do make it easy.

Congrats on the 600 f4E, it's a gem. Look forward to seeing some great images from you.

I think many people are now posting on the generic 400 f2.8 thread rather than this specific to the 400 f2.8E FL VR lens.

You guys are killing me. I've been moving toward a 600/4 E FL and then upgrade my 400/2.8G. But the 1.4x looks so good on this, maybe that would be the way to go, and henpeck up a 600/4E. I haven't really seen used copies of either of these, so it'll take me a little longer.

Thank you very much, Morris. Yes, this is one of the reasons I really like that particular image.
