A while ago I had modified a TC-16a so I could use it with my 400mm on a D700. I literally wasted 2 other TC-16a's trying to modify it properly, but once I had done it right I tried it first by shooting the sky and when I saw the vignetting in the corners I dejectedly abandoned it completely. I went out and purchased a TC-301 instead. However, I saw a person had shot these incredible bird pictures with a 500mm f/4 and a modified TC-16a and I thought, "hey, they look really good. Let me try it again."

So, here's what i got in my test today. I thought they came out pretty well. The only problem is that my lens is so slow with the converter attached, which is too bad. Overall though, the AF worked really well, better than I thought, and the exposures were pretty accurate.
