Latest Photograph – Nuthatch

Nuthatch, Fujifilm X-T2, Fujifilm 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR & Teleconverter XF 1.4X TC WRNuthatch, Fujifilm X-T2, 100-400mm and 1.4x. 1/400, f/8, ISO800, 560mm.

This is probably a first, a ‘latest photograph’ blog post with a photograph taken on the same day!

Towards the end of last year I invested in a Fujifilm X-T2 camera and I’ll be blogging about my experiences in more detail soon. More recently, a friend very kindly loaned me a Fujifilm 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 and 1.4x teleconverter. Over the last few days I’ve been getting out and about in Northumberland (UK) to see how it performs. I didn’t hold much hope for this combination as my past experiences of using teleconverters with zoom lenses have been less than favourable. However, I am absolutely amazed at the quality produced by this combination, especially the overall sharpness at full reach (560mm with an effective field of view of 840mm).

This photograph of a nuthatch was taken in one of the hides at the Natural History Society of Northumbria reserve in Gosforth (www.nhsn.ncl.ac.uk)
