Two dragonflies from the garden, no Id'...

Z6, 100-400/4-5.6 S lens, TC-14-Z, Meiko 18mm, monopod, gimbal.

In my opinion it is an incredible lens!!

Amazing close-ups Andrew. In my experience, dragonflies are not easy targets...

One year ago I shot the same dragonflies using the same body-Z6 but an old lens 200-500/5.6 with TC-III...

What do you think guys?? The new lens is really much better...????

I take it that "TC-14-Z" means TC 1.4 Z.

I have this lens and the TC 1.4 Z. What I would try (and may) is run the Nikon internal stacking algorithm and see if I get a series of layers where the dragonfly does not move, and then stack those layers, seeing if we can get more details in focus.
