Wahoo, Just awesome !!!

Thank you for your lovely comment, Georgino.

Sometimes I can get some great shots out of TC2 III + 300 2.8 combo
But usually they are just good not perfect

However I found 1.7 is the best TC for 300 2.8 (of course 1.4 but that is expected)

Interesting. I have found the 2x TCIII a tad better than the 1.7x TCII on the 300 f2.8, or at minimum no worse. What camera are you using this combo on? I haven't used the various 300 + TC combos on the D800 yet, but on the D7000 I had to be very careful in low light as the AF accuracy wasn't always perfect, goo, but not perfect.

The D800's AF seems to be much faster and more accurate with the 500 f4 and 300 bare, so I will have to try the 300 + TC's to see how it goes.

You done it well my friend - Thanks for sharing

and thank you again!
