Re: 1000 photos ruined

I ahve used the 70-200 VR1 with a 1.4x TC and have found it to be very sharp wide open at f/4. With the Kenko 2x, there is some softness, but that disappears stopping down one stop.

If you have blurry images, I would check the AF mode and how you were using it. Also, did you engage the VR and allow it to "stablize" before you snapped the shutter? Did you have the VR set to normal or active? Were you on a monopod or tripod? What camera are you using? Are the subjects moving? What shutter speed were you at? It's tough to dianose the issue without more details and sample images.

However, I can guarantee that the 2.5m to infinity limiter on the 70-200 VR1 is not the issue -- I use that way all the time for sports and get sharp shots.
