As for birding ... no, I don't go in for that.

Are you sure? These are fantastic for a non birder and I'd say the best bird images I've seen posted here. Definintely proven worthy of numerous publications. If you have more I would enjoy viewing them.

I agree about proper testing and will look forward to following your conclusions.

D70s with Tamron 1.4x on 1985 70-210 f4 ... today's cost about 400 bucks ...

Nikon D2Hs (4 MP!!) plus 300mm f/4 current cost still around 1300 bucks ... but 4mp ...

That kind of puts the lie to the need to shoot the HS series at 16mp, doesn't it ...

Here's one from the D700 with 70-300 consumer zoom ... a little expensive, but not that bad today ... under 20 grand for the whole kit, but reach only to 300mm ...

That image has been published in our city news paper (Ottawa Citizen) 2 or 3 times, most recently two weeks ago ...

I had one published just last week (2 weeks consecutive if I have confused you) from the Panasonic GH2 with 100-300 (600mm reach) ...
