Re: 300mm F4 + TC1.7 or Tamron 200-500mm for sports

I have used the 300mm f/4 AF-S with a 1.4x converter and I noticed no obvious drop in speed or in image quality, so I can recommend this setup.

The lens was wrote off recently when I dropped it, but I would definately get another one rather than look at something else.

I used mine for birding. The pic below was taken with the 300mm without the TC.
