500mm D3 and 500mm + 1.4 tc D3 full size free download
Jun 13, 2010

I spent a little time with the 500 f/4 today and also slipped the 1,4 tc on as well giving me 700mm. Here is a link to the full sized images if you want to download them, shot jpeg fine sharpening on 7 or 8, taken into NX2 and applied digital lighting, (minimal difference) and then 24% sharpening.

I still feel I am getting minor front focusing and will try to dial in maybe -2 to see how it pans out.

Obviously these will be better shooting RAW but, I usually shoot jpeg fine hard sharp for sport.

If you want to know what kind of birds they are, the first is a brown cuckoo dove and the second is a male king parrot, 2 of around 10 different types of bird that hang around my backyard in the mountains.


These are the medium sized images.
The first is 700mm @ f/7.1

Second is 500mm @ f/4, wide open!
