With all the teleconverter discussion here, I thought I'd post some test images I shot with my 70-300 ED zoom and the TC-201 2X teleconverter. The results are nothing to brag about. I did these shots at the full 600mm zoom, wide open and down 1 stop. The images were soft, although the color and contrast remained good. Vignetting isn't a problem. These scans are downsampled from the highest resolution my Minolta Scan Dual will capture. Even scaled down, you can see the softness in the images (I didn't apply an unsharp mask in Photoshop). The film is Ektachrome VS.





The tele macro capability would be a great tool if the combo produced sharper images.
