First warm and clear night out this way. Decided to grab a quick handheld shot. SEL200600 with 1.4xTC. 100% crop

You can drop the ISO to 100, aperture to f/8, and shutter as low as 1/50 sec. And you will be able to still get a very sharp, detailed shot. This isn't bad for a 1.4 TC result.
With the 1.4 TC, and 600mm FL (840 actual), I can't go below f/9 (6.3 x 1.4). And as it was handheld, I was getting a lot of shake, even with stabilization on. AF was impossible, MF was a bear. This was the best of about 10 shots I tried. any shorter shutter speed was a lot worse. With the weather warming, I will definitely need find the time to be able to set up the tripod for some better shots. This was while I was out walking the dog :)

I should also probably use the R3 instead - Not sure which would be better for something like this.

You walk the dog with this rig? I'm impressed, although perhaps you do bicep curls while walking with it as does my neighbor. :)

Ah, I see. I assumed this was on a tripod. Even more impressive result for handheld!

Managed a little while in the garden this afternoon despite the weather, little bits of sun interspersed with dark clouds and heavy showers!
