Outrigger Race with Nikon V3 and 300 f4 AFS
Jun 9, 2014

Attached the 300mm AFS f4 lens to the V3 via the Ft1 adapter to get 810mm of reach at a local outrigger race. The 300 and Ft1 weigh 3.5 pounds (1.6kg) with no VR so I had to use a monopod. The soon to be released 70-300CX weighs about a third 1.2 pounds (550g), has VR plus is not limited to the center focus point only. As much as I enjoy the 300, I expect the 70-300CX to be better. In the meantime here are some photos.
