"RE: D800e with 300 mm 2.8. Surprising results without and with TC 's"
The corollary to this is I did similar tests with D2X and D3. There is no really good substitute to getting closer to your subject or longer glass, even with the D800.The D800 is a step forward and it made the 300mm lens perform much better.I think the frame rate of the D800 would be unsuitable for sports or BIF, having used the D3.For full disclosure, I am looking at gettng a 600mm lens. I hope someone will share the best F stop experience for a 600 with teleconvertors. As I noted with my testing for wide open, the teleconvertors with 300 2.8 were disappointing.I had read that the D800 is the sharpest in the F range of 4-5. Well not always true.
