Thank youi for your valuable feedback. Much appreciated.

I have been very seriously thinking of a D300s as a long lens solution to back up my D700. As you say, the 1.5x crop is a very valuable asset and the 300 f2.8 with 2x TCIII will work very well as a 600mm f5.6. If I do get the 600/4, that will be even better!

The K-7 with FA*600 f4 would be an ideal combo, too. I have seen some sensational shots from that lens and would love to be able to have it mounted onto my K-7!!! s we know, Pentax does make some of the best glass. Even so, as much as I loved my K-7 and my Pentax glass, I just could never justify the expense of the FA*600 with an APS C camera (don't ask me why!) but it seems more feasible with a FF camera like the D700 and added to the fact that if I ever needed to I could sell it off, whereas the FA*600 f4 is a little more difficult to get my money back on, I would imagine.

Anyway, thank you for your insight. I would love to see some of your results from the FA*600/4.
Hi lance,

I have create a thread in the other forum where I have put a bunch of shots made this last 6 month (I have the lens for 6 month now)

Thank you for the link. I have left this comment "over there" as well as here:
Magnificent shots, Jeanphilippe! The FA*600 is a real gem and your skills with it are exceptional. A 600mm lens is a difficult thing to use well but you have shown that you are a master with it!

Spectacular bird shot Pal. That's one fine telephoto prime.

Awesome. So much for that earlier argument saying you can't shoot birds with FF and a 600mm.
