I have a 300 f4 and use it with the Nikon 1.4 teleconverter, but I always use a tripod in this mode. Yeah you may get some OK shots but if you want critical sharpness, use a tripod. I just ordered the 80-400 afs for this reason. By the way the bird photos posted by starman1969 are not even close to being sharp. IMHO.
