the near far nord, eh!
I’m always impressed with the sharpness of the images in this thread, and while I have been able to capture a few sharp ones with decent light, and without any TC attached, I took a shot of a pileated woodpecker (posted over in the Covid weekly challenge thread) that imo was less than stellar. I had the 1.4 Tc on but I’m thinking it was as much my technique as anything... hand held cuz the big guy doesn’t stay around long and I wanted the shot for the challenge. I have captured him/her successfully with the 40-150\2.8 + 1.4 but that was from much closer and he was on the sun side of the branch. This time, not so lucky.

Is there a specific technique of holding these long lens when shooting handheld? Ie. normally my left hand is underneath the barrel and usually closer to the body than the lens hood. Would I get more stability with hand fire the out towards the end of the lens?
