    So, I tried my 2x TC on the 500 f/4 II. The AF has issues (lots of hunting)...but when locked on...I am not complaining....

    Excellent detail as expected!! Pre-focusing and setting the focus limiting switch both help tremendously if you are working within a known distance. You can prevent the system from extreme searching. The results are worth it....great images at 1000mm.

    Thanks for the tips. I wasn't thinking about the prefocus points. The distances are pretty set. The HB feeder is down to the right of the perch for my main bird feeders.
