Q: I am really into my wildlife photography but cannot afford a super zoom lens, I have a 300mm and am considering a teleconvertor. Has anybody had a experience with these and would you recommend them?

A: Do you know?

Bow on view of the very clean hull lines of this Iowa-class battleship in Norfolk, VA. Interesting note: this is not the original bow of USS Wisconsin. When she sustained damage in a collision with USS Eaton in May 1956, her damaged bow was removed and a 120 ton, 68 foot section of the bow of the unfinished battleship USS Kentucky was fitted as a replacement.
