Oh yeah baby, this is a freakin better design! It’s one think to take a test shot in a sterile environment and it’s a whole other matter shooting in the real world. Well, I finally had the opportunity to use the TC-20e3 actually shooting and to say I’m damned impressed is an understatement.

This really doesn’t look like much at first glance, but it was enough to impress the hell out of me. There I am at the marsh working on a coastal gray morning. I look up to see this GBH flying right down the pipe at me. I says to myself, “What the hell” and throw the lens up on it.

The top image is the 1st in the series, the bottom is the 20th in the series. I just depressed the shutter release and let ‘er rip. ALL, every single image in the 20 frame series is sharp. The D3s connected to the 600VR AND TC-20e3 shooting in overcase, flight light keeping focus of an uncoming subject that is bluish-gray. Shooting at f/8, 1/60s ISO 200 and 20 sharp images, that catches my attention!
