Re: Need a bit more range - 1.4x TC or Minolta 500 Reflex?

I have both.    The 500mm is great. Small.   F8.  70-300 is more usable.   Depends. A 1.4 tc will be smaller than the 500 to pack.  But the tc can’t reach the focal length of the 500.

You have to learn how to shoot the 500 and it’s not that crazy bad. But trees, you’ll get crazy donuts.  Or with water rippling.  But I love mine. I don’t use it enough though.  I have a RXm4 and it’s just super easy to grab.

I have the Sony tc and it’s nice and sharp.

just think of how you shoot amd the ranges. That’ll be you helper on choosing.

ive been collecting the Sony lenses because you can find them half the price.
