    You go buy a 600mm, and then all you end up doing is putting a 2x converter on it. There is never a lens long enough!......Mike

    But the feeders are located under some evergreen trees in a State park. Had to use the flash and Better Beamer attached. This is at min. focusing distance for the 600, cropped just a 1/2" off left side. We really don't have many hummers around here. If you get 1 in your backyard you are lucky. This park has 5 feeders and draws as many as 75 hummers at one time.....Mike

    I am a noob at macro photography (well.. photography as a whole LOL). How close do you have to be using your 600 and 2x converter? Does 2x converter pretty much make it a 1200mm?

    It's just close..5.8m....yes 1200mm, a poor man's version.....below is a little closer to macro, with a 180mm Canon L Macro....go to the macro forum here and see some really eye-popping work by some masters.......Mike
