I recently purchased a used Nikon 200-400mm lens and have been testing it out (although not in ideal situations). Here is one photo from this past weekend, unfortunate that I couldn't get out earlier in the day but I ref youth soccer this time of year.
As always C&C appreciated and thanks for looking, Tim

Daniel, Thanks for the kind words. I think I will like this lens, just a tad heavier than I expected. This came out much better than I anticipated since the dove is sitting in a mess of trees created by hurricane Sandy last fall. We lost 15+ trees on our property due to the heavy, wet snow. Thanks, Tim
Richard, Thanks and I think I will like it a lot, especially after I build up my arm strength some more! Got it since I can't really do much hand-holding with my Sigma 500mm without VR. Got it for when I want to sans tripod, BIF and pelagic trips. Just picked up a TC14EII that seems to work well - will know more once the rain stops and I can get outside. Tim
