Thanks for viewing.


Nice pic, Dave.  Have you tried that 400mm with your 1.4 TC yet?

No, not yet.  It'd be manual focus only and probably really hard to focus given the length (560mm) and the dark viewfinder (f/8 wide open).  Given the bird feeder setup the lens is almost too long as is.  I took this one from approx. 15 feet away and the some of the bigger birds barely fit in the frame (grackles)

Maybe later.  The lens has to go back a week from Monday.
