Nice birdies in their environment, Pixee. Personally, I would shoot them at a wider aperture and lower ISO to achieve a better separation of the subject and less noise.



I would also like use wider aperture and lower iso, of course, if I had used a 600 mm f4 tele but this subjective test of curiosity was done with 300 f2.8 tele with Tc 20IIIe which means that widest aperture is f5.6. 6.3 is 1/3 stops down the wide open with tc. I was also interested how well af of Df works with Tc. It worked well. Iso 1600 and 3200 were chosen in purpose to see how well Df handles low light high iso. Df does good work also with high iso, seems better than d800.
