    Pete's experience is more authoritative than my own since his is real world shooting. Just confirming that mating the Kenko 1.4 TC up to the 200-500 with the D810 and autofocus still worked. The Kenko seems to work well with the Nikon lenses I've tried, where using the same Kenko TC with Tamron lenses (which was the reason I bought the thing) has produced no joy.

    Thanks for the info. I'm going to pick it up when he gets back from vacation and give it a try.

    I went up to Olympic Park just outside of Park City, UT, last Sunday. They were holding the final day of competition for the U23 World Championships, specifically the ski jumping portion. I mostly stood directly in front of the jump, which was quite far from where they start at the top, but I could at least follow them all the way down unhindered. I think there were only about 30 spectators, which is sad, although I found out later that the big football game was that same day, so maybe everyone was too busy with that. I took about 3,000 frames too many, but it is what it is. The sun was right behind the jump, and the hill was mostly in shadow until the very bottom where it flattened out into the sun. VR was on the whole time & it is simply fantastic. Lens is far sharper than anything I was getting from my Tamron G1.

    Top of the hill:


    I had hundreds of these type of shots:


    Half way down:


    Preparing to land:


    Landed-notice the flex in the skis


    Slight biff at the bottom:


    A few from the bottom of the hill:

    I finally had an opportunity to use my 200-500. Had a chance to sit on the porch and do a bit of bird watching.

    This lens will take a couple of trips to get the hang of. The focus is SO quiet, I almost thought it wasn't working. One thing is for sure ... it's SWEEEEET!

    Nice shots. Congrats on the new lens. Just watch the hood. It falls off if you're not careful.

    Thanks, Pete! Wish I was testing her out at the M&G. I'll watch that hood issue. Don't use one often, but that would be annoying at the very least.

    Maybe not the typical use of this lens, but the light wasn't working well while testing with the TC14III, so I decided to turn around from the birds and make an image with Lisa and our pup Lily instead.
