Hello,

I need some help figuring out what I am doing incorrectly but my internet while I am in the Grand Tetons isn't very good.

I am shooting a D800 with the 300mm F2.8 vrii lens along with all 3 TC's. Naturally, while being out here, the 2.0 TC 3 has come in handy the most since I seem to always need more reach.

However, it has really made the images soft when zooming into them. (I haven't been able to get a picture uploaded on here because of internet...even though my facebook page can upload)

I am using the wimberley wh-200 head and a sturdy tripod...always keep my hand resting on the lens above the wimberley and try to roll my finger over the release on the D800. (I have also been trying to keep the shutter above 1/1000 even though the elk and moose haven't been moving very quickly to see if that would ease the softness)

You can see some samples on www.facebook.com/sheetsstudios until I can get some uploaded on here.

I head to Yellowstone in the morning for a week so please help...it's driving me crazy as the 300mm has been perfect without TC's and all I read is how the TC's do work fairly well. I have also looked up and seen examples that look fairly crisp to me at 100% crop.

Thanks!

Ryan
