Thanks Alex,

I can't dispute your results but I just did the same test shots with my 70-200 VR1 and have the same results as with the 300 f/4. Maybe even a little better. I am not going to post it unless you want me too but in general both the lenses work equally well with my TC17. As I mentioned in my reponse to Reza, I did not like my results very much until I switched my settings on the D800. A month ago I was not really satisfied with the TC17 on any lens...now it seems to be ok for me. Are you seeing the contrast weaknesses you speak of in my pics in the first post?? Maybe I just don't see it.

And I have post processed these shots in PS, since I view my results and the quality I get only after PP. Quite frankly, if I can get my pics to where I like them, I don't care if they come out on the camera that way. Also, if I shot RAW (which I have done several times), they would be even better. I don't mess with RAW much just yet. My 1st goal is to get consistant with the D800 and lenses in Jpeg, then go to RAW and they should be even better.

PS: You have some "spectacular" shots on your Flickr site. My admiration to you and your skills!!!! Seriously.
