Gearing up for a new trip

To keep up with the tradition, we decided to go on a long trip abroad again this year! This time, we’re heading down the globe nearly vertically to find ourselves in the southern part of Africa once more.

We generally need a lot of millimetres when we’re over there, and this time we’re  tied to weight limits a little more than usual. That’s where this apparatus comes in handy: it’ll sacrifice some light to gain twice the focal length. The trusty 70-200 f2.8 will double to a 140-400 f5.6, which will suffice in replacing the humongous 150-500 f5.6-f6.3 weighing in at around 2kgs. At 330 grams, that’s a nice trade-off. 🙂

Initial testing is nothing less than satisfactory, with the occasional excellent, making me confident that we won’t regret this decision.
I know for sure the destination will not let us down!
