Good ideas and info all . . .

The most elegant solution for more long end is certainly the N1 Super-Telephoto lens, should it ever materialize. The prototype looks suitably small for a lens of its type. Of course, people would try to attach a teleconverter to it too! And it would probably not be cheap, which is a big constraint for me at the moment. I wonder if Nikon is waiting on N1 sales growth to produce it.

The size and weight of a teleconverter is an issue. One of the advantages of the mirrorless compacts is that you can carry them in pieces, only taking along or showing the pieces you need. No doubt the TCs are conspicuous and relatively heavy when in use, even Justin's smallish one.

Tom, I've admired some lens surgery I've seen over the years, but I doubt I'll try it!
