Took my D80, D700, and the 300 f2.8 IF ED with 1.4 TC out for a spin today. These first three shots were with the D80 on the 300 f2.8 and TC. I was actually quite surprised at how easy it was to mf with this combo. Obviously the better the light, the easier it is, but still. I decided to take my monopod with me today as it's one thing to shoot street handheld, and another to shoot this stuff handheld. A lot more waiting with your eye at the viewfinder type thing. Iso was 320, shutter speeds were 1/2000th, wide open with TC. The following shots are all D700 with the 300 f2.8 and TC. Iso 800 for the first two, Iso 2500 for the last two.
