V1 + 300mm f/4 + 1.4 TC + monopod?
Mar 14, 2012

I am thinking of the above combination (TC is optional) for bird and wildlife photos. Anything more capable is too heavy (without spending quite a bit on a new and lighter tripod) and probably too expensive for me. (However, I would plan to use the V1 with its lenses and my D300 with the 300mm and TC 1.4 as well.)

1. What shutter speed is needed w/a monopod and the V1 combination above?

2. Is a 1.4 TC practical with the V1 and 300mm?

3. Thanks for any advice!
