I was pleasantly surprised.......
Posted By: Heinrich Lohmann, 06-13-2008, 11:20 AM

.......with the 1.4 TC on Bigma. I had never really used it but yesterday I figured that it was time to try it under real conditiones. All handheld but leaned against whatever was available including elbows on table. VR does a wonderful job, exif is intact.

This last one is whithout the TC 1.4

No doubt that with better technic like on a tripod etc things could be improved but in my way of shooting that only happens rarely.

Those are some very nice pictures, and I can't believe they're "handheld" with a bigma AND a 1.4TC! Great stuff!
Thank you for the kind comments but please keep in mind that "handheld" is sort of relative. Like I said in the post, leaned against whatever was available including elbows on a table. It is impossible to just stand there on your two feet and handhold a 700mm lens.

Take care,
