    Pelagic cruise to edge of continental shelf, south of Port Fairy

    This was a day trip dedicated to bird shooting and also shooting sharks, whales and dolphins if they were about.
    The edge of the shelf is biologically rich.

    Northern Great Petrel - immature. These are big birds and even the albatross stay away from them.

    Well done Ziggy, the Shy Alby has a nesting site in Bass Strait and Iím lucky enough to see them regularly. Have never seen a Giant Petrel although I know others who have.
    How do you find the 1.4 teleconverter on the Sony kit? Iíve thought about it but the price is a turn off and I sit down and wait for the urge to go away!

    Thanks for the feedback Rachael Alice and closei

    Yeah, the 1.4x TC does very well on the 100-400mm. I've been getting some lovely images out of them. Sorry to say that I can recommend it and yes it is a crazy amount of money That zoom with the Sony 2x TC takes a real IQ dive and changes a very good lens to an average one.

    Thanks, I wouldnít go with x2. At the moment Iím able to crop a 42 Mp image and retain reasonable IQ. I can use the 100/400 with my crop sensor A6400 which gives an equivalent to the teleconverter so Iím not sure I can be persuaded to part with $800 for the adapter. Itís working well for you though.
