Good god does that lens perform well with tc's on it. Simply amazed the last one is 1.4 and a 2.0 stacked. I am months away from the 500 or the 400 f/2.8, tough decision. Good job on the shots...Jeff

Great series. This shows that TC don't take away from IQ like some believe. And is that last shot at 1400mm?!
