Teleconverter question
7 months ago

OK say one usually lands up cropping away 1/4-1/2 of a bird, insect, animal... photo. Now they use a 1.4 teleconverter that causes a 5%-10% loss in sharpness. But that same shot now gets a lot less cropped away. Wouldn't one get a better photo using the teleconverter as long as the shutter speed stays fast enough for the subject?
