Hi Francine, The shots of the Cormorant & Eurasian Coot were taken from about 20' & 30' respectively. The Cormorant was slightly cropped. The Coot wasn't. Although I should have cropped some of the uninteresting area out in front of the bird. The Grebe was around 100' away from me & was severely cropped. The beauty of the 300mm f/4D is that it is a pretty sharp lens to begin with. The D300s extends that to 450mm. Add the 1.4TC & I effectively have a reach of 630mm. You would achieve the same benefit on your D90. I'm attaching the same photo uncropped for comparison.....Scotty.
