Re: Nikon 70-200mm F/4 test pics on DX

Finally got some sample pictures from a 'head-to-head' (timed both ways up and down the river) race at the weekend. I've included a few pictures for comparison with the 300/4 + TC14EII, because the two together make a good (light and relatively cheap) set for sports in good light (sun at my back, I had on average 1/1000 @ISO100 f/4 (or ISO200 f/5.6)). Because of the angles, they're no good for corner sharpness, because the corners were a very different distance away, but I hope they're useful.

Unprocessed OOC JPGs:

70-200/4 @160mm f/4.5 1/640 ISO100

70-200/4 @200mm, 1/1000, f/4, ISO100

70-200/4 @200mm, 1/800 f/4 ISO100

70-200/4 @200mm 1/1000, f/4, ISO110

300/4+TC14EII, 1/1000, f/5.6, ISO220

300/4+TC14EII, 1/1000, f/5.6, ISO160

All these were shot with release priority AF-C, and I haven't yet fine-tuned the lenses on the bodies they were on.
