I'll start looking on the Best Bird Portraits thread more often. 800mm is serious business.
And thanks for the welcome
It has to be an issue of micro-adjusting, right? I noticed my 200 HS was off a bit shooting with my 2xTC, so it looks like I need to put in some time with the adjustment process.
I am getting critical sharpness when I hit the target, I just need to get better acquainted with my rig I think.
Yes.. I would suggest start with micro adjust. If you have to adjust anything on the 135 - you may find eye AF working for you. I hope!
When you add a converter to a lens, to the camera it becomes a different lens with a different ID. So, you may, or may not need a micro adjust for your 200 alone, but even if not, you may very well need one with the converter. One more thing you may already know - always attach the lens AND converter together to the camera, not the converter first, then the lens. It can confuse the camera as to what is on it, and can certainly mess up any micro adjust settings you have.
All the best on getting it sorted!
