So I invested in some new gear before the end of the year.
- Nikon D800
- Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8
Then this last weekend I bit the bullet and ordered a second new lens and a teleconverter.
- Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8
- Nikon 2X teleconverter
So the 20-200mm & 2X teleconverter arrived, YAY!!! Of course after work I ran down to the river to test it out before the sun was gone, and here is what I got.
Of course the 2X teleconverter not only doubles the focal length of the lens being used it also doubles the f/stop. So the lens is a f2.8 through out its focal length there for with the teleconverter it goes to a f5.6. So with the higher f/stop I increased the ISO to 1000 to keep the shutter speed a bit higher to try to freeze the action. I might in the future raise the ISO even higher to bump the shutter speed even higher as well. However with it all being said I am still very happy with the results.
