Got out with the 2X teleconverter and the 300mm. This image is about 1/5 of the 50 MP full frame and is close to a 100% crop when viewed. I was not disappointed with the results this combination gives me, although I did notice some strange focussing behavior in some shots. Don't know what was going on there (had a small green box indicating focus, but image didn't look like a focus took place within that box).

Overall very pleased with the images that resulted from using the 300mm with the 2X.





ILCE-1, 1/2000 sec, f/5.6, ISO 400, 600mm (FE 300mm F2.8 with 2X TC)

Nice. Something about the framing and the birdís crest and expression make it look more like an angry bird of prey.

Great shot

We have - finally - had a couple of sunny weekends in a row, so I was able to get out and enjoy a little Spring. Santa Cruz arboretum... a1 + 300GM, mostly WO or slightly stopped down.

Has anyone replaced their 400GM with the 300GM?

I don't know if you shoot the A1 with the 2x on other lenses but that's "typical" behavior for it in cases like this. If the subject is higher contrast it's less likely but once the contras is below a certain threshold this problem will kick in.

The 2 pics with the birds intertwined are spectacular.

Do you prefer the 300 with 2x to something like the 200-600?

Excellent images Geoff!

I was considering picking a 300mm f/2.8 up

How would you say the hit rate and IQ are with the 2X teleconverter?

Yeah that guy bought my hoods and then copied my designs. I am working on one for the 300 though so stay tuned. (I know, I'm a little late)

Those are certainly Jon's designs. Not sure if Jon is associated with that site? He has his own site but no 300 hood.

I'd want my hood to be more like 2". I run a 2.25" on the 600GM.

I will message you directly when I need a 300 hood (if my 400GM ever sells) and send my friend your way for his if he wants one. He has your hood for his 600GM.
