Just returned from an ideal birds in flight location. I was keen to test my new 3oomm F4 lens with TC-14 E-II on D7000 camera.
Sitting target was no problem but birds in flight was something else. I tried AF-C with Dynamic 9pts, AF-A with Dynamic and Dynamic 3D. So what works for me. Nothing. Most of the images were out of focus regardless of the settings. I selected few that might pass. It is not as easy as it looks. Something just does not work. I used monopod for support.
