"Trolling the shore for subjects....."
Mon 13-May-13 04:25 AM by Lunastar

Mankato, US
          

I took the 200-400 w/14TC and a D300 out in the boat and slowly trolled a shoreline for subjects. It was fairly windy so hand holding the beast with 40% more focal length was challenging and frustrating. I'm not overjoyed with the performance with the TC attached but I'll reserve judgement until I shoot on solid ground.

Hi Mark

You describe the scene so well I can imagine the frustration.

I just wanted to tell you that, without the wind, I am very sure
that 3 and 4 would have been super keepers in my book.

CU again on solid ground!

Great shots Mark, the last 3 are super, the Pelican in flight is a real beauty, I feel your sentiments on the TC as i am also not impressed with it on my 500mm especially at any kind of distance shots

Thanks, Brian! The 200-400/4 is razor sharp alone but I may need to calibrate it with the TC as I think it's missing focus a touch with it attached. I've got a buddy who shoots waterfowl w/a 200-400 and 14TC and the resulting images are fantastic. Of course, it may be my technique although I had no complaints with the 17TC on my 300/2.8.

Nice set Mark. I miss my 200-400, great lens. My lens delivered sharp images even with the TC1.4. But, not at first until I tuned them to the camera. Perhaps it's just me but on the yellow warbler it appears to be slightly front focused. Hope to see more.

Well I think the series is very nice. I will have to look on the big monitor because on my iPhone they look super.

Mark very nice pictures I use that setup often and find that shooting with the 1.4 converter in a boat on choppy water is very difficult, it' s almost like the TC doesn't like the shaking , before you do all the adjustments take another trip when waters are glass calm and see how your pictures compare
take care Michael
