Outrigger Race with Nikon V3 and 300 f4 AFS
4 months ago

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.
