70-200VRII+TC-20 E III on D800E

Postby Stany Buyle » Fri 7 Sep 2012 22:05

3 years ago I was very impressed with this 70-200VRII+TC-20 E III combo on my D700, so now I'm interested how it performs on my D800E...

AF with this combo works like a charm on D800(E), -as expected-, also for birds in flight. "Keepers rate"(subject in focus) during this session was over 90%.

Until now only 4 images with 100% crops, all taken handhold in windy conditions. Most at iso 640 and F5.6... aperture that does not make me expect very sharp images.
This 70-200VRII+TC-20 E III was doing excellent on my D700 at F7.1.

:!: No sharpening of any kind has been applied to these images.

This topic will be completed with more samples in the coming days...

Iso 640 and F5.6, 1/2000 sec. This picture was initially underexposed and I pushed 1.0 EV, which brings some noise... :(

Thanks for your attention and kindest regards,

Click here for the original crop.

The above image was taken with 70-200VRII + 2xTCeIII and is a 50% crop from the underneath scene, resized to 1000px longest side:

I am quite happy with this result. AF was doing perfect, also in the other 10 images from the same landing.
