I have to agree, Mr Joseph (can I call you Jeep?). I've had mine for almost a decade and I have no interest in spending a dime for something newer to replace it. The images I get are just as good using the Nikon 1.4X TC as shots with the lens alone. Shots using the 1.7X aren't as good, but look just fine when printed no larger than a book page (about 10X12 max). Shots using just the 300 and the 300+1.4X can easily be printed 16X20 or larger, dependent more on my technique than the optics. The autofocus is not the equal of today's autofocus, and that would matter if I got into shooting birds in flight (not too likely here in the desert).

I agree about the tripod collar. It won't get any awards for being lightweight and compact, either.
