I purchased the 1.4x MkIII TC for my little 100-400 this weekend and took if for a spin. It's definitely a keeper and it allowed me to get some Grebe shots that have been at the top of my 'want' list for some time now.

My, personal, favorite of the day:

Thanks Peter; pretty nice for adding a TC in the mix, right? The good news is that they're still quite young (note the egg tooth on all). So, any day in the next week *should* get you some nice shots...just be sure to take the 500 along. They're a comfortable distance from shore, which is good; but anything shorter's going to be somewhat disappointing, I think.

Thanks Betty! Yep, that pretty much made my year right there; the rest of the shoots are gravy :D

All came together for you, Eric, well done. First time I saw one of these, thought it was a duckling. Even as adults, they're cute.

Outstanding set Eric, the first is my favorite as well. I'd be thrilled to have an opportunity like this.

Thanks Mike! We get to see the adults, mostly, year round (although, it's mostly their butts as they dive :D ). Fun little things, though.
