I know the 500PF is the Star of this section, but let's show the Original some love too... :)

I had never seen (or heard of) a "tagged" butterfly, before this past weekend.

I looked it up and the University of Kansas is tracking Monarch migration to southern Mexico. This was taken near Sherman, TX. (close to the OK. border).

Phil, dropping some heat! Quite the share, the 300PF looks to be just as capable as the 500, but accolades must go to the photographer on these!

Too kind, Matt. Many thanks.

This lens was part of what I bought when made my initial Nikon purchase, after selling off my Canon gear.

It's quite capable, and it's F4. It's about the size of a 24-70 F2.8, only much lighter.

Beautiful images guys.

I will soon get the 300 f/4 PF.

Which TC should I combine with it to be used with D7200 ? ( also have D750 )

Thank you. :)

The latest version of the 1.4x (V-III) and the 1.7x both work very well with the 300PF. Interestingly, I really haven't the the 2x with it, but I can confirm that the other two work quite well.

The caveat to the 1.7x is the additional 2/3 stop of light that is lost.

If I were getting one, I'd go with 1.4x vIII.

Thanks ... appreciate your advice.

Would the 1.4 give me approx 420mm at f5.6 ?
