One let me say the AF is very good with the V1 and FT-1/70-300VR. Another thing is VR helps but I was shooting at to slow shutter speeds one is at 1/60 makes hand holding hard at 810mm FoV. But I can see in the right conditions or tripod mounted this is going to be a very powerful combo!
These stink low light and harsh light but they give you an idea of the reach and how the FT-1 and 70-300VR fill the viewfinder I was like wow. To bad it was I didn't have time to do the job proper since I was getting ready for my Scout Lock in and the sun was going down. On both series I was about 25 to 30 yards away. One shot at 70 then again at 300 I just wish I had upped the ISO to gain some shutter speed. I didn't do any post processing just resize and convert.
I need a nice day and night to really put this thru its paces.
