Wow!!! Nikkor AFS 300 VR f2.8 + TC17EII

I did take plunge in the deep. It cost me heaps of $$, but I overwone my fear, convinced my wife and bought the AFS 300 VR F2.8 and TC. Of course this combo didn't fit in my backpack so I ordered a new Naturetrekker too. (And I had to promise my wife not to spend any money in new lenses and cameras for a decade).

On the D300 this combo feels a bit heavy (it IS heavy, thank you very much) and I believe it takes a little bit of practise to strenghten my left arm. I have absolutely no problems to hike with this combo and backpack for a day or so.

Then the image quality. It is absolutely, flat out, perfect! I have no other words to describe this. AF on the D300 is very quick and reliable. I think with this combo my "lenslust" is over for a long time. My wife will ensure that ;))

Ok, then some images of the local zoo to start with.
