Adam, I'll be sending mine to the Jamesburg, NJ
office too. I'm only about 40 miles away in NE Philly, so I'm considering driving it up there, but I don't feel making the 2 hour round trip.
ManuCH, I also noticed things get a lot trickier with the 1.4X attached. However, my lens has been acting soft/out of focus even without the 1.4X on. Last time I was shooting the sun was getting low so I upped to 200 ISO so I could keep F8 and 1/640th, so shutter speed shouldn;t have been a problem.
I just tried cleaning the contacts on the lens and camera. I'm going shooting again on Sunday so I'll see how things go.
I think Big Foot is blurry, Its not the photographers fault. Theres a large out of focus monster roaming the countryside
