Re: Why not a 100-400/4.5-5.6?

I don't buy a zoom lens such as the Nikon f4.0 70-200, then put a tc 2.0EIII on it and expect an execellant image.  I wouldn't buy this lens for reach, a longer focal length fixed lens is much, much better.  These dam teleconverters are just not as good as any of the native lenses, especially with converters ugh!!!!  I buy zoom lens to keep inside the zoom range without converters.

I bought the Nikon 70-200 f4.0 lens to shoot images from 70-200 period.
