Much appreciated Bruce! It was great to get this uncropped image without much work in post. The 300PF with the 1.4 TC is the big reason I never bought the 500PF. An awesome lightweight way to get to 300mm.

Don't try the 500PF... you just might change your mind; this coming from a guy w/ a 300PF, 500PF, 200-400VR, & 200-500VR

Agreed, the lens got a bit overshadowed when its big brother the 500mm PF was released but even after acquiring that lens I still find plenty of uses for my 300mm PF.

It's a very versatile mid range telephoto for larger subjects but I really love its very short minimum focusing distance that's roughly 3 feet closer focusing than the pro level 300mm f/2.8. That makes the 300mm PF pretty useful for certain types of macro work especially when you add a TC and it takes TCs quite well. It's also one of my favorite lenses for Hummingbirds and other birds visiting the yard with or without the TC-14 E III attached.

Here's some images from my 300mm PF

Trashline Orbweaver Spider on Web







Female MacGillivray's Warbler

Agreed, it's a terrific little lens, even for close up work.

I was so tempted to buy this lens, but thinking of school activities in auditoriums and such with low light, I ended up with the Sigma 120-300 f/2.8... oh man, it is heavy! https://imgur.com/a/3fQSibd

Definitely. The fly agaric picture below was obtained by combining 19 (in-camera) focus stacked images:

Hi Luka,
can I ask you if you too find the borders of the image softer than the center (on Z6), even at f/5.6 - f/8?
Thanks.

Riccardo,

I have not noticed, or paid proper attention to the border. DOF is rather thin so unless I am shooting flat subject filling the frame, which is not often, I won't notice it I guess. The crisp rendition of where focus is whether at center or on the sides, have been satisfactory for me though.
