    First I would like to say that I am a photographer by hobby. I admit that I am by no means a professional! I should tell you before I go any further that I am a Nikon man, though I have nothing against Canon. It is simply that when I got into the digital SLR market, the Nikon D300 had just been released and was for my purposes the best camera available. I am very happy with the performance of the D300 over the past few years and my enjoyment for photography has grown tremendously. I would classify myself primarily as a nature/wildlife/outdoors photographer…though for now you could even subclassify me as a bird photographer. I live very close to the island of Galveston, TX and birds are one thing we have a lot of!

    I am starting this blog as a result of several requests from my friends and family who are also into photography but who do not spend as much time, effort, or money on the hobby as I have. They wanted me to have a forum to share my experiences, knowledge, and information/impressions about my equipment. I should also tell you that I am a trial and error type of person, and it is in this way that I have learned most about photography. For example, I read a lot about a particular photography subject and then go and try it out to get practical experience in that area. This has worked well for me thus far, or at least I think so. I preface my blog with this information so that you as the reader know my background and can adjust your expectation or interest in this blog accordingly. I am not a professional who knows every technical term or theory in photography to discuss and explain. Instead, I am a person who is probably just like you, who enjoys photography and has decided to “talk” about his experiences. Simple as that. So you will notice that many of my “reviews” are not in depth discussions of the technical aspects of a particular piece of equipment, but rather short descriptions and impressions, supplemented by lots of sample photos. I prefer to let you make your own decisions about how well something will work for your particular needs based on the sample photos I provide and my impressions. I would recommend double clicking on photos so you can see it at 100% magnification since sometimes there are subtle differences between photos.

    The majority of my blog will probably revolve around my photography equipment with reviews, sample image galleries, and other various comparison tests. I will probably also discuss some techniques and theory from time to time. I am also willing to try various things with my equipment upon request and then “publish” the results. Hopefully some of the information I share will be helpful to some. Please feel free to leave constructive feedback! Thanks for viewing

    Dear KSQ,

    I found your review of the 300mm f2.8 x 2.0 useful.

    I am currently using a 70-200mm f2.8 VR I x 2.0 and have had some nice shots, but often miss the sharpness and detail becase I can’t get close enough.

    I am considering the 200-400mm f4.0 – not much of an improvement in aperture, but from what I’ve read, significantly better in sharpness.

    Have you used this lens, in combination with the TCs, and what is your experience?

    Many thanks!

    Thanks for the comment. I am also considering the 200-400mm f4 or the 500mm f4 in the near future. I have only used the 200-400mm once before but not with a teleconverter. However, I just emailed the owner of the 200-400mm f4 VRII that I borrowed and asked her a series of questions about the performance with and without teleconverters. I will post the answers when I hear back from her. I know that she has all three Nikon teleconverters but not sure how much she has used them in combination with the lens. She hasn’t owned the lens very long (only a few months) but has taken on a couple of trip already, most recently to Montana. So I will share her impressions and perhaps I can get a few sample photos to share. Thanks again for the comment.
