...I would like to point out that having three PS3's represents an obsession bordering on a fetish, while having three F* 300/4.5's is merely totally logical.
The logical extension is that you need two more camera bodies to match.

Great shots, Mike.

I see you have a few teleconverters, how good is the combination F*300 + TC?

Where in Spain do you live?

The second Robin shot was taken with the F* 300mm and Tamron 1.4x TC.
I currently have a Pentax 1.7x on loan and am trying that out with the lens.

I am no longer in Spain, I moved back to the UK 2 weeks ago (and I am missing it already ).

It would be great if you could tell us how the F* works with the Pentax 1.7x.

some f*300mm cropped osprey pics
Inspired by ivoire's excellent osprey crops, I'm also contributing a few of my own F* 300/4.5 osprey crops.

[Except for cropping, there was no post-processing performed on these images.]

Thumbnails -


100% crops -


Hmmm... Might make a good avatar... (<g>)
