    Ring up WEX and ask if they could do anything on the price. I assume you bought via the Internet. If so you could suggest returning it in the 7 day period as leverage. You may not get the new lowest price but worth a call ?

    I have posted these in the bird section, but thought I would add some here as some may not venture over to that section!. Anyway, heard a bit of a commotion whilst sitting in the kitchen and seen some Red Kites having a fight with some crows, time I grabbed the camera the action was over, but the Kites stayed around over the house for a while so managed some shots.

    Seeing @bledyn125's post reminded me to look through some I took at my first air show - Dunsfold Wings & Wheels in August.

    Bought one a few weeks ago and I'm very impressed with the results. Here is one taken on a trip to Portugal last week.

    Rear view. used my D750 this time instead of my D7200, a lot more happier with the results.

    Waiting to see if my punt on Ebay comes off asked as many questions as I could to cover myself even asked e bay to look at the listing as its far to cheap (I offered £450 and offer accepted). Apparently coming from Latvia boxed new we shall see, expecting it not to show up howver I have been sent a tracking number this week.

    Will report back the outcome of this rather reckless punt

    The guy lives in Spalding near Peterborough but he is basically going to Latvia to buy and ship several lenses if we are to believed interestingly the courier that he is using is based in Poland and transports EU nationals to the UK on a weekly basis so some cross border movement. As I have said dont expect to see either the lens or the teleconverter maybe a empty box at best!!

    His feedback is poor but I have spoke to PayPal who assure me I am covered should no lens turn up. I am by nature if it's too good to be true it normally is type of person.

    Definitely need to get a tele converter for my d750 or I may have to go back to a cropped sensor body.
    As I went out yesterday and the reach just wasn't enough

    If you are at home open it in front of the courier. He may get agitated but it will only take a few seconds.. although I wouldn't greet him immediately waving a Stanley knife

    Sent from my SM-T800 using Talk Photography Forums mobile app

    Has anyone installed the latest firmware update for this lens yet? I am interested if a Canon 1.4x tc MkII will still work OK after the update (it works fine now).

    I just got mine on Saturday, updated the firmware yesterday but haven't really tried it out yet. If I get time tonight I'll stick my 1.4x on it and see what happens

    Ive just put mine on, and it wont autofocus. Do I need to tape pins up? Anything else? Or should it just screw on and work?

    Possibly, think it will only autofocus on bodies that support f/9 autofocus.

    I am indeed, as Roy said it worked. Mine doesnt after the upgrade, but someone else has told me that it will if I tape some pins off.
    To be honest I dont intend to put an extender on it, 600mm will be enough for me, I was just seeing if it was possible
