    I was at a camera shop yesterday evening. The shop keeper actually discourage me from getting this lens ( 100-400mm ). He claims that 70-200mm F2.8 + 1.4x TC will let you have a better coverage , cost savings, weight advantage and similiar performace.

    Well, lets see how this guy perform this Saturday first.
    Tell you the fact, with the combination, 400mm at f5.6 + 1.4X = 520mm at f6.3 and extremely slow AF....Lets pray we have a bright day that day, or else we will be pushing our ISOs.

    Kind of agreed with the shopkeeper words.

    Kind of agreed with the shopkeeper words.
    I recently try to ISO 1200 to capture some events at night ,http://forum.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=327479, before the shoot, I have the impression that the image quality will be poor . But I am only concern on weather will I be able to catch the action or not.

    After the event, when I look at the shots, I feel that the grain actually creates a certain kind of MOOD that is very interesting. It kind of feels very real and nice feeling. The feeling when looking at the shots is unlike seeing those very well polished and fine shots. I actually like the feel very much now.

    Now, I will not hesitate to push the ISO to 1600 if needed to.

    thanks for the comments.
