Hello

WOndering if anyone has tried the above with the D800 and if you found the results to be sharp.

In your experiencewhat has been the optimum aperture with the above combo for shooting birds?

Thx.

I find no mention of him using a Nikon 300mm f/4.

Here is a quote:

I always have one of the TCs attached to the 300mm F4 prime, since my subjects require at least 400mm reach for a reasonable shot. With the new D600 and D800 bodies that can autofocus up to F8, I typically use the 1.7x TC to get a 510mm effective reach on the full frame bodies. The 1.4x TC is used occasionally when I need a bit more light, but most of the time I shoot with the 1.7x TC. I also stop down to F7.1 or F8 if I can to get just a bit more sharpness when lighting conditions allow for the 1.7x TC. I shoot wide open at F5.6 for the 1.4x TC.
