    @Fortkentdad if you do get the kenko 1.4TC I'll be very interested to see how you get on. The Nikon one is more money than I'd want to pay for something that I might end up not using very much. If the Kenko produces good results I might be persuaded to add it to my bag.

    I'm still shocked by how much cropping I feel I can get away with using this lens. Some might feel this is too much but to me the IQ is still very useable. I'll post the cropped pic with my standard editing with another from the same sequence SOOC.

    Btw I'm really chuffed to have got shots of great crested grebes taxiing their young about.

    Listers,

    I just had my lens delivered.

    Stunning bit of gear but the lens hood is well..... I wish it was a bit more. Not easy to mount backwards for transport.

    So far I have taken two shots hand held at a 60th and they look fine.

    More to come.

    Good shooting.

    I have an older Gitzo tripod with a Kirk model one ball on it. The Gitzo is heavy but the ball is nearly perfect and it is the setup I will use for the 200-500. I am waiting for a QR plate and I will be off.

    Congratulations, it's a great piece of kit!

    I agree the lens hood is awkward to mount backwards but I think you'll agree that's just a minor point compared to how good this lens is. Looking forward to seeing some of your results with it.

    Pulled the trigger and ordered at Kenko Pro 300 1.4 from B&H. $129 US (I think that is on discount?) - came to $165 CDN significantly less than any on offer in Canada. I hope the warranty is international - sometimes they are not.

    BTW "Free Shipping" to Canada I discovered only applies if you pre-pay the duty fees. (Which were about half what K&H wanted for shipping same item so still less) I've ordered lots of camera gear from the USA and other places. Never ever paid a duty fee. This 'pre-pay' the duty and save yourself the hassle is dubious at best. I just considered it shipping. I could have paid the shipping and avoided the duty fee - it came out within pennies of the same amount. Coincidence I'm sure.

    Coming by US Mail to Canada Post via Canada duty people - should have it by July, well August for sure.

    I also snagged an APE Large ACPROLC18 lens case - many reviewers raved about how well it held their 200-500. I have mine in a big hard case - great protection for sure, not the easiest thing to sling about. Now I'll have options. Picked it up used for $29.00 - sweet deal, costs $69 here in Canada.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgcri25Ojao Nice review of that case.

    Say "Awww" as in that 200-500 is awwwsome.


    Shot with the 200-500mm on the Jobu Micro Jimbal Adaptor on my monopod.

    Jimbal is working great.

    I may want to upgrade the ballhead, on the Manfrotto monopod currently using an Joby "X" ballhead. Rated for 11 pounds so should hold but it has lost the grip and let go of the lens. I'm a 'belt and suspenders' kinda guy so even when the gear is on the monopod, it is still attached to the strap around my neck - and a good thing today. I actually grabbed the camera and lens as it let go. Maybe I had not secured it properly in the first place. Always good practice to double check all attachments with this gear.
