I did a little experiment in this picture. I staked Canon 1.4X and 2.0X Kenco teleconverters to my Canon 300mm lens. The equivalent focal length is actually 840mm and the max. aperture supposed to become F/8. For a some reason the camera did not senses the 2.0X Kenco ,the EXIF data is incorrect and the MAX aperture is shown F/4 !!!!. The camera autofocus well and rather fast in relative good light and the details in the picture acceptable. What is stranger is that the camera over expose with aprox. 2/3 stops. instead of underexpose.
The male Rose-breasted Grosbeak, boldly patterned in black, white, and rose, is easily identified. The drab, striped female, however, is more of a challenge, resembling a large sparrow or finch. A common bird of forests and second growth, the grosbeak's song is like that of the robin, only as sung by an opera singer, being mellower and more sweetly melodic
