To keep up with th' tradition, we decided t' go on a long trip abroad again this year! This time, we’re headin' down th' globe nearly vertically t' find ourselves in th' southern part o' Africa once more.
We generally need a lot o' millimetres when we’re o'er there, and this time we’re tied t' weight limits a little more than usual. That’s where this apparatus comes in handy: it’ll sacrifice some light t' gain twice th' focal length. The trusty 70-200 f2.8 will double t' a 140-400 f5.6, which will suffice in replacin' th' humongous 150-500 f5.6-f6.3 weighin' in at aroun' 2kgs. At 330 grams, that’s a nice trade-off. Fire the cannons, we'll keel-haul ye! 🙂
Initial testin' is nothin' less than satisfactory, with th' occasional excellent, makin' me confident that we won’t regret this decision.
I know fer sure th' destination will not let us down!
