    Unfortunately will be without WiFi until September so I thought I'd leave this one post here just as I took them in the garden the other day. A7s w/ Miranda 70-200mm

    The lack of sharpness in these shots is pushing me towards the 90mm G Macro, must resist!

    Frog lover here. Was going to start a thread about frogs/pond life, but this thread seems good to continue with ;)
    Trying out my new to me Canon 300mm f/4 Prime for the first time today. I think I'm in love.

    Glad to hear its turning out well for you...my most favorite / most used lens.
    PS:
    If your 300 is the manual Canon FD model from the 80's...and you ever get interested in long range shots like the moon, etc...adding a matching Canon FD 2x-A Tele-Extender makes for an outstanding 600mm lens

    Ok so this may be a stupid question, but I'm new so.. ;) If get the extender, do I attach it to the lens and then the Metabones adapter? Because they don't make the tele extender with e mount correct?

    Oh and it's AF

    Sorry, I don't know about the modern automated lenses...it's why I mentioned the Canon FD 300 from the 80's (manual legacy lenses) and the associated Canon FD 2x-A Tele-Extender made for them back then.
    I can say that I mount the Canon FD 300 to its Canon FD 2x-A extender first, then mount the assembled pair to the Canon FD / NEX adapter on the NEX-7 body.

    That's correct. You need the correct Canon tele-extender and connect to the Metabones. That said, you may want to check Metabones and what others are saying about comparability with extenders before buying one.

    One of my favourite lenses - and most versatile, from my Canon days.
    Attach a extension tube and it makes a good close up lens as well ;)

    Took another frog shot the other day, with my recently purchased 90mm G Macro, much sharper
