If you have the 1.4x some shots at 630mm wide open would be gratefully received (along with a report on AF speed)

Not bad for hand held shots Kenspo. So it's clear we're scrutinizing each pic to the highest degree to assess the performance of these lenses (No pressure) I know the weather has not been good, try some shots with a tripod (not monopod) preferably on a gimbal head attachment (if you can manage) to minimize movement and really dial those shots in.

I appreciate you effort so far, much obliged...
