Finally got out to give the Kenko TC I picked up over a month or so ago a workout. Was happy to come across the Tree Swallow. I love the color and slick/shine to these guys. This one let me inch up little by little to within about 10 ft or so.
Taken with the Canon 70-200 f4 IS + Kenko 1.4 TC. I used AF to lock on but used manual from there to pinpoint focus.
