i found the link that i mentioned in an earlier thread about this version having 77mm filter size vs 82mm on non AF-S.he is suspicious of this because to get f4 at 300mm, "a clear aperture of 75mm is needed + a larger filter size to prevent mechanical vignetting at the sides of image" at wide open. he is concerned that it is neither a true f4 nor 300mm or there may be some "nasty" falloff at f4. on another note, he is not impressed by coupling of 80-200 f2.8 AF-S with TC-14e to achieve near equivalent. i was considering purchase of this lens but mr. rockwell's comments have me concerned. could anyone comment? welcome back all you travellers. i'm glad you had a great time.
we're anticipating some views of your adventure. judy from clearing northwest
