Re: BIF with D800e and 28-300AF-S VR

Some of you obviously haven't bothered to have actually looked at the Tamron 150-600 Canon samples on Flickr which are tack sharp at 600mm taken with the five year old 7D, to say nothing of the 5D3.  The mind reels as to what the D800e will produce.  Shooting at f8 for birds levels the playing field considerably.  When backed up with that many pixels, a good zoom will hold its own without any problem compared to the monster primes.  I would be very surprised if the 500VR with t.c. could keep up, either for detail or focusing.

We'll see, or at least I will.
