By shelldud
taken yesterday in woods near doncaster south yorkshire.
I met a great guy in the woods who let me use his 1.4 converter on my lens giving me 560mm. there was a down side though i lost AF so had to manually focus. i ended up with alot of my shots just out of focus. so the converter is brilliant if you can manual focus ok but as i cant i wont be buying one.

Excellent Shot of the Chaffinch , There is a way to get AF Working with the 100-400mm Lense and 1x4 Extender .

Im sure someone will be able to tell you or if you do a search or ask in the forum .

Great image. Well caught and composed in what I imagine was a very short space of time. Smile

Nice shot Shell.... yep you can get the AF to work by taping over 3 of the sensors in the converter with no effect on performance

A lovely shot Shell. The Chaffinches seem to be in excellent condition this year. This fella's plumage is spot on.
