Yep..another one is coming. Must ask other than people pics, what other images do you capture with this lens?

Allround lens that you should had from the start, PJ! Man, you've really been missing something... LOL Herman PS. Do yourself a favour and get a TC20e III as well and you'll have a killer combination of up to 140~400mm. PJ, you may then even become a Birder!!!

If I could have only one lens, this would be it.  My only complaint is it is heavy but with all that glass what else would you expect. I use the 1.7 teleconverter with mixed results.  Probably operator error.  Enjoy, PJ.

It is on one camera ALL the time. It serves a lot of situations. It is THE lens to have if you had to have just one. I don't put any teleconverters on it.

I've been using mine for wildlife with a 1.4TC.

It's now my favourite combo on the D300s using a monopod.

It's a pretty amazing lens. I just love it......Scotty.

 

Here is a recent shot taken without the TC.
