Re: teleconverter for birding?

There is not a lot of difference in IQ with the tc attached. The keeper rate without the tc attached is slightly better. Obviously not that much better to prevent me from using the tc. I take multiple bursts to give the camera every chance of catching something sharp.
I do have the 70-200 on a seperate body.

If there are larger birds about, then it does come in handy, but I don't always carry it.

Very rarely do I take off the converter for just one moment and I am more likely to try and move further away if it's possible.

If the moment passes without a photo, and there have been plenty, thems the breaks.


Gotta believe in something....I believe I'll take another photo!
