Lenses and the quest for the newest....

I have a confession to make...  I have had my fair share of NAS - Nikon Aquisition Syndrome, and always wanted more and better....  I don't think that being quality minded is bad either, and maybe it pays in the long run to save up, and buy the better quality in the end.
But I could not resist when a 25 year old Nikon AF-S 300mm 2.8D was on sale in the local camera store.  And I really do not think I need the newest lenses anymore...  Coupled with TC-20Eiii, which gives a 600mm, I tested that combo yesterday.  What a reach and sharpness!!  The enclosed photo is a crop from a photo.  The camera, a D4  (16MP), was placed approx 8km away from the motive, and you still can spot humans walking on that roof.

I'm on cloud 7 here, guys, sorry!

TESTSTHOT:  Nikon D4, AF-S 300 2.8D, TC-20Eiii, crop, slightly sharpened in LR..
