The 70-200 f2.8 vr1 is a very sharp lens but close up, the 200mm is more like a 150mm in practice. This is a problem when shooting close up passerines.

A TC 1.4 Kenco (cheaper) or a Nikon TC 1.4 will increase the reach with excellent quality.

The Nikon v 1 hybrid (a small marvel of a box) with the ft1 mount works wonders with the 70-200, an added incentive. Peter
