Some more "real life" tests of the 50-300/4.5 ED, this time making a crazy combo:
"poor man" 80-400mm semi-AF.
An experiment with the 50-300mm f/4.5 ED ai-s + modified TC16A.
I don't know if would be better post here or in the "MF shooters shooting AF" thread, but anyway the lens itself is a MF lens and the moded TC16A just makes a fine tuning AF, since we have to manual focus prior to activate the TC16A AFocusing. I would say MF is ~90% and AF 10% of the focusing procedure.

Couple in a Harley Davidson ~95m of distance from my balcony.
D7100 + Nikkor 50-300mm f/4,5 ED ai-s @300mm + modified TC16A (= 80-480mm f/7.2) + tripod, ISO 500, f/5.6 (in fact f/9) at 1/500s, ~50% cropped.
Biker with the the "poor man 80-400mm" semi-AF lens by labecoaves, on Flickr
Biker ~70m of distance from my balcony.
Another real life test of the "poor man 80-400mm" semi-AF lens.
D7100 + Nikkor 50-300mm f/4.5 ED ai-s @300mm + modified TC16A (= 80-480mm f/7.2) + tripod, ISO 500, f/5.6 (in fact f/9) at 1/500s, ~50% cropped.
I think this is not bad for a 30+ years old design, that needs to be pre-manual focused, then TC16A probably degrades a little the image; and at 70-95 metres away (believing in Google Earth). No VR, nano, AF-S or other whistles and bells, but the crazy combo did the job raesonably well!
As I used a D7100, in fact it was a 120-720mm lens!!...Show more →
Love this Jose, I have used this tc16a and 50-300mm combo very succesfully, but normally with sunlight and closing to f8, you know the 50-300mm is one of my favorite lenses.
