At lunchtime today I went out and looked for test opportunities... OK I am continuing to "test" so I can get better at using this little gem - I really want it to be a great option - and here is the one decent photo I got - the birds would not comply at all today in Greenbelt, Maryland.

This little guy (please help me with the species) was way more than 100 yards away and I was using the V1, 70-200 (at 200) and a TC 20E III. That makes a 400*2.7=1070 equivalent mm, and this image is about a 66% crop (in NX2).

With that in mind, I am impressed with my success in this image... (sorry it isn't up to the standards of some of the pro's here).
