My first trip this year to see how the Annual Rut was progressing at Bushy Park. Still very quiet in regards to full on Antler clashes, but a great morning to experiment with the new camera.
This was shot with a Kenko 1.4x convertor attached and it auto focusses every time, something that you cannot do with a more expensive Canon convertor fitted to a 5.6 lens

excellent shot, I wonder what he is saying? Something like "Did you see the blackberries down there ?"
Kenko hint taken on board. Need something to work better with my 200 micro.

Thank you so much Sandy.
Yep have to agree the clarity is first class and now auto focus with a 1.4 on the back of the 800. Really impressed to say the least.

Super image - as ever - Richard. Such a serene expression captured on the hind - obviously liked what the rook was whispering! Looks like you had a good day - as I remarked on Ron's image - wish Bushy Park was nearer to me! Lou

A lovely moment, beautifully captured. And what wonderful quality - I'll be putting the Mk3 on my Christmas list, but, sadly, I don't suppose Santa will obligeWink
