Wow - pin sharp - thanks for posting.

Question is how much better if you drop the shutter speed to 1/400 and lower the ISO to 800 ?

The real test is when you have to shoot at the lowest hand holdable speed say 1/100, F8 and 16,000 ISO to get a picture.

I have a bunch of shots at various ISO between 3,200 and 16,000 and honestly, there is not that much of a difference...

I used 1/8000s because I was trying to get a picture of those birds taking off...

Here is one, without the TC, at ISO 5600. Slightly cropped. 320mm, 1/8000s f/8.0
