I was anxious to shoot this owl with the D7100, especially to compare the results with Richard's use of the 600 f4 VR & TC-20EIII on his D300. https://www.nikonians.org/forums/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=161&topic_id=153784&mesg_id=153784&page=4 . The D7100 with 500 f4 AF-S & TC-17E produces about the same crop size in this case (2000 x 3000 pixels, 6 MP). To my eye they're surprisingly close. D7100 w/ 500 f4 AF-S & TC-17E, 1/800 f7.1 ISO 200.

By the way, I used Jason Odell's D800 technique to sharpen this shot: http://www.luminescentphoto.com/blog/2012/06/29/get-sharp-with-the-nikon-d800/.
