DA* 300 Now that I have the AF fine adjustment set to +3 for backfocusing with that lens it is much better.

One from mid November. Ben Cruachan at dawn from the shores of Loch Awe. Taken with 15mm Ltd 3 bracketed exposures, ISO100 on a Tripod and then combined in photmatix (Fusion Natural).

I sed both my K-3 and K-5 today, the K-5 with the A-400, and the K-3 with the DA* 60-250 and 1.4 TC.

I did get a couple K-3 images...

With the TC, shot at 350mm.



No TC shot at 250mm


With the TC shot at 350mm


And probably my personal favourite.... DA* 60-250, @ 250mm -- "Look out, coming behind you.. duck, duck, I mean Blue Jay , Blue Jay"

Super great shots with this TC, Norm.
Have you more with the DA*300/4 +TC by any chance?

. Looking back through the threads, I can't find a 300ƒ4 posted image using the TC. I don't own a 300 so it won't be me.
