300f4 + 1.7tc or Sigma 150-500
Mar 3, 2009

I have the Nikon 300afs F4 and the Nikon TC1.7TC, this combo gives me a reach of 765mm on my D300. So far I have been very happy with the results. My only complaint is slow focusing and the inability to lock focus on BIF shots late in the day. The Sigma would have near the same reach but would the focusing be any faster or the IQ and better.

I would have to take in to account that I generally am shooting the nikon set up at F8 for sharpness and at least 1/500 shutter speed to keep camera shake under control.
