Hi Dennis,

Agree.  Some great advice on this thread.

I have only experience with E-30/E-5 and 50-200mm SWD + EC2.0. As others have mentioned the 1.4 TC is probably the best IQ wise but I went for reach. I have been pleased with results I have achieved although BIF are a bit hit and miss ( probably just me). At the long end the EC2.0 magnifies any camera shake so good hand holding techniques or a monopod/tripod is required.

Thanks for these comments.  Of course I would love more reach but I guess I'll also have to factor in the cost of a good monopod or tripod.

Here are some samples I posted in the weekly Sunday Bird thread:


Beautiful shots of the kingfisher.  If I could get shots like that, I would be very happy.

Good luck with your choice.

Thank you,
