Excellent inflight w/ detail, Karl!
Does the 500pf work well with TC14E II and/or TC14E III?

Thanks, KK. I have the III only and the lens works well with it. I might buy an other used one and one would be permanently attached to the 300 f 4.0 PF which is great for BIF as it is so light.

KK, I do not have either PF lens.  That being said, I tried the 1.4 II and sent it back because it definitely affected image quality.  Got the 1.4 III and have been very happy with it.

A great image of this fast flying duck. You must get a lot of good practice at your pier because the shots seem to get better and better. Well done !

Great image Karl, sadly one of the last from that location now that it's closed off.

Thanks, Gene!
Some reviews say TC14E II works okay w/ 500pf and that was my Question.
If I get the lens it'd be ver. III TC14E ...
