500 F/4.5 + MC-14. Nice TC

I see DPR is screwing with the images again on upload. View originals for better details.

Using the 1.4x Oly MC-14 with the Canon FD 500 F/4.5L.

I was commenting to Paul the other day in one of his posts how I tried the Oly 1.4x TC, but I realised I was pushing it in the distance department along with the ISO vs shutter speed. All shots went in the bin, but I knew I was at fault.

So decided to get a bit more serious with it and kept it fairly close on the birds.

Sacred Kingfisher

Bit closer this one

Black necked Stilt

Spur winged Plovers

White faced Heron

Just liked the look on the face of this one

Very impressed with the Oly TC. Seems to be more corrected than the Canon FD 1.4x TC and it's pretty darn sharp with the 500 F/4.5L. CA is not an issue either which is interesting for a TC. Simply stop down an F/stop or two and it's pretty good to say the least.

All the best folks.
