Thank you to everyone for the excellent advice, opinions and images! Those are great WingNZ!

My other question relates to using the 2x teleconverter on the 500VR with either of these bodies. I imagine there would be no difference when it comes to that. Anyone getting decent results with that setup? Not BIF, more tripod based work. i.e. bird on nest type situation where one has time to focus, stop down etc.

It took me a year or so to properly tune my 500f4 to the 2TCEIII. Now I have it it is quite useful and better than cropping alone. But the naked lens is so good and has a quality that is lost somewhat when a TC is used. So I use the 500 mainly on it's own with a D800 but if I must have reach then the 2TCEIIII is in my bag.
