Enough, I've thought about this for quite a while and this thread spurred my Gear Acquisition Syndrome really bad. I bought the US-located one on eBay. The seller lowered the price and further for watchers. The TAX though! Oops.

Anyway, he should ship it late November. In time for Snowy Owl season in NYC.

I'll try to post some stuff with my D850 and D7200 with and without the TC301 2x teleconverter when I get it.

House needs so much work. I am nuts!!


Good luck with the TC301. I had one 25 Plus years ago.  I never liked it, and, sold it.  I did use a TC14B with my Nikon 800mm f5.6. It did work, as long as the lighting conditions are OK.

Also, beware of shooting on a hot day over a long distance.  I was shooting the Suzuka 8 Hour Motor Cycle Race... way back in 1990. ( man 30 years ago .....time flies)

Lots of heat distortion, and, much of my trannies were soft.

I did shoot a swimsuit model once....... Amazing results . Bokeh to die for
