David Wirawan September 08, 2006

outstanding, this is the my dream to take photo like this, wow enjoying your bird photos, very very nice, especially this one. Amazing. Tamron TC 2C is good? which one is better Tamron 2X or Canon 1.4X?
#3286026

Janine Russell level-deluxe September 09, 2006

David, thanks very much for your kind words of encouragement; I rarely use the Tamron 2x TC because of the loss of image quality - a lot of light is needed with the 2x TC. I almost always use the Tamron 1.4x TC and it is great; the camera continues to auto focus quickly and there doesn't seem to be any loss of image quality. I don't have any experience with the Canon 1.4x TC. #3288276
