Looking forward to your images!
Very interested to hear how the ability to resolve holds up with the A1+300GM+2xTC combo, it appears the 300GM performs very well with the 2xTC

Interesting that Sony dropped the a mount 300 from $7200 to $6000 for the E. The original was a rebadged Minolta optics and was hand built by a craftsman.

This lens has me intrigued to say the least. Very nice capture BTW. I live in the 400mm to 600mm range and the thought of having a lens as light and compact as the 300 f/2.8 is very appealing, especially if it handles teleconverters well. I have no doubt the lens will be amazing with the 1.4x on it... the 2x is the big question... at least for me. The image above shows a lot of detail for having the 2x on it.

Did you notice any major impact to focusing speeds or in the full size file... a big hit to the fine details?

I'm not expecting it to look almost macro sharp like a 600 f/4 @ f/.5.6 but it would be pretty amazing if it were close.

We anxiously await further details.

Nice to see one of the first actual real-life images from this combo here, on FM forums .
I have a small question too:
the blurred bird near the top-right corner in the first picture looks a bit off to me. Is it straight out of cam or could it be some post-processing effect?

Thanks for sharing your images.
My question is how long for the camera to turn on? Is it like the A1? Is it fast from sleep?

Thank you in advance

Would love to see if the 300 GM+2X TC is sharper than the 200-600 at 600mm. May get one to shoot hummingbirds in my yards if it's sharper. I have no use for 300mm, so it may be silly to buy a 300mm lens to use it with a 2X TC all the time.

Waddaya mean, can't get any detail shot? I mean, its a zoom, not a prime, I get it, but no detail? You will have seen the gazillion of sharp shots in the 200-600G image thread. You'll get more details from a shot with the 200-600G on a high rez body, than from the 300GM+TC2x on the A9III.

Alex, thank you for posting the examples above. Is the roadrunner a 100% crop or is this a full image as you were close enough to fill the frame. The details are great!

I own the 200-600 as well... I've been very pleased with the lens. I've also rented the 600 f/4 a couple of times and it's almost macro sharp. Have you shot the 600 f/4? If so, would you say the 300 f/2.8 is on par with it? I was very happy with the 1.4x on the 600... almost no loss in details. I do not own the 2x so I don't have anything to compare it to.

Speaking for myself... if the 300 with the 2x on it is sharper than the 200-600 and I gain f/5.6 over f/6.3...and a 420mm f/4 with the 1.4x on it... and lol of course a 300 at f/2.8...it might be worth the purchase. I like the size and weight of the lens as well.

Thanks again for taking the time to post the images and to share your thoughts.
Hatch
