    I know a few Canon users who have done the same thing.

    So how does the 150-500 rate as a spotting lens, is the AF good enough to track during take off. I looks to be pretty sharp at 500mm.

    That will not really help, as I need more then 300mm of reach and with a 1.4 TC it will be less then 300mm.
