Fa1.7 Tc Test Shots

I was out fishing last night and took along my FA*300 with FA1.7xTC, to test on distant birds. I've never managed a keeper Caspian Tern- until last night:

This image has been cropped by approx. 70% so I'm extremely pleased with the IQ using this converter. Looks like my other ones are eBay bound.

Thanks, Wim (ishpuini)!

Definitely a keeper. Eyes are sharp and colour are rich. Great combination
