What's your opinion on the sharpness?

Funny thing. Not in a ha ha way though. I take the 200-400 off the body this weekend and discover I had left a 1.4TCIII on it. I had put it on earlier that day for a quick test shot on some wild turkeys and forgot about it. Probably explains the softness as I hadn't even done a rudimentary AF fine tune on it. And simply that a TC was on there didn't help.

Hence the 550 in the exif. I thought it was just an error.

Oh, well.....

Ah, so that was the "550mm." I had breezily assumed that it was the focal length multiplied by the crop factor.

Had no idea you had a TC on--on that was not AF-tuned to boot!
